but it didn't supply a pleasant answer. :( it shows that i'm going to have 6tb sitting out there as "unused" space. is there a way to add that unused space into the volume??
You need to replace more drives of larger capacity in order to gain space.

A 6Tb drive cannot provide parity for another one with 12Tb.
