Filter output height question / water level

Hello everyone, I am new to this forum and just recently purchased a small 5 gallon tank from PetSmart. Here is the exact model I have:


How full should I fill this aquarium? Should the water line be just below the water comes out of the filter? This tank has a separate back section walled off from the rest of the tank, which contains the filter and heater, and there is a quick water change pump back there as well. I guess I would want the water line to be below that to prevent any fish from swimming against the current of the filter and into that back section of the tank?

If I can figure out how to post a picture, I will upload it to show you all.

Thanks in advance!
