Anyone have a picture or can describe to me where the 5 gallon mark is on a 6 gallon, glass carboy?

last time I did 5 gallons in a 6 gallon carboy... I measured the sanitizer as I put it in... when I hit 5 gallons, I put a piece of tape on the carboy to mark the 5 gallon mark for later use...
sadly, I do not have a picture of it, and the tape isn't on it anymore (plus, I don't know how much it would help if I did, since I use Better Bottles).

yea, I meant to mark it off first but forgot. Hopefully remember next time... next year :)

Not sure if it would be the same size as a 6 gallon better bottle or not but this is all I could find.

You could always get containor of know incraments, like say a gallon of milk and fill the carboy from that marking the carboy at every gallon
