You could get a gallon and a half critter keepre and put a heater in it. There would be enough room for a plant and small decoration. I have one of my females in one.

How big are those little fish bowls? I know she wants a small environment but not too small. If she can tolerate a gallon it would be better. If not 1/2 gallon is fine but I wouldn't go smaller. Also, you can warm the water on the smaller tanks by shining a desk lamp on them a couple times a day. The light will warm the water.

I definitely wouldn't go smaller than a gallon or gallon and a half.

The tank with the light and heart is awesome :)

I had an aggresive female in a half gallon and she was so active and was fine with a weekly water change :)

Awesome! thanks guys! I didn't have the time to get to the store today, but tomorrow I definently will..... I'll get her the 1g tank with the heart, cuz everyone seems to have decided on that one. :) Its really cheap, too. I think the light should warm her water up enough. I feel so bad putting her in a gallon even tho it makes her happy. I usually have a 2.5g minimum like I said before..... but If she's happier in the gallon I'll get it for her. Thanks, everyone!!!

The mini bow one from petco is what Captain is in and he seems to like it, I keep the light on all day and it keeps it at about 80 degrees. It also comes in pink so it looks good in my room :)
