Thanks guys! I think I will do what you guys are recommending. So my setup will most likely be a 1 gallon glass bowl, bare-bottomed with java moss, a marimo ball, and two glass shrimp. Then again, marimos are really expensive at my LFS ($25 USD), so it may just be the java moss.

All my fish:

Jimmy- Dark Red and Gray Male Veiltail Betta

I'll be getting more fish soon.

My possibly-could-be stepsister's betta:
Mystery- White, Pink, and Purple Female Veiltail

You could get something like water lettuce or duck weed to throw on top. It's a pest for most people, but it wouldn't be too big a problem in a bowl :D

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.
