What to do with these bowls

I now have 2 empty 1 gallon bowls (excluding my emergency bowl)


What can I do with them, now?
Dare I ask what kind of fish I may be able to keep in them?
Just curious- otherwise they are sitting there collecting dust.


OR, if it comes down to it, I'll do something crafty

You can always do a planted bowl. ;D I have one on a dry start. I plan of adding a few shrimp to it.

It is a bowl, you can get at walmart in the fish section.

I would go with something crafty. There really isn't much suited for a 1 gal bowl aside from a betta. And even then it's not the best home you could give him. Just do some neat artsy thing with it ^-^

Maybe some shrimps? or use it to house a slow growing plant like a cactus

That would be cool if you could connect them somehow, then you could do some shrimp, a betta or 2-3 ADFs ( it would also be pretty crafty )

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)
