Bringing an aquarium onto the plane?

Soooo I found a beautiful 2.5 gallon tank in another country and I bought it on impulse. Now I have to figure out how to get it into Canada. Anyone have experience with this stuff? It's small so it fits into my bag, just not sure if I'm allowed to bring it on as a carry on (or if I should have it as checked baggage)?

I brought my ADA Mini-S back in my carry on, with no problems. I would not trust an aquarium in checked luggage.

Assuming it is empty???
The main thing to watch is the size limits. They may find it a bit odd going through security but then they see most everything already.
Definitely not in checked baggage!! All kinds of Christmas presents go through as long as they can see them.

It really depends on the airline. Some are more chill than others, but don't put it in the main baggage lol or you'll find it in pieces.
