If you are strapped for cash, a big mixing bowl, a plastic storage container or a bucket are all alternatives. However, a Kritter Keeper isn't expensive, from what I hear.

Make sure to properly clean it................. Anything over a gallon is suitable if you heat it and do regular water changes.

If you keep him in a bowl make sure you have some cover on it (clingfilm/shrink wrap with holes in) or only half fill it. Betta's WILL jump. I didn't think Kyon would just until one day I got distracted halfway through feeding and had my finger an inch above the water with a pellet stuck to it and Mr Impatience jumped to get it off my finger. This is only temporary though, nothing is better than a heated, filtered tank with plants and hiding spots. Not just for health but because they deserve more than just a mixing bowl.

I really don't believe they could care less if it was a mixing bowl or not, just how much room they get to swim in, their environment and water quality. Us humans tend to care more about seeing them in a mixing bowl, we want to put pretty things in pretty places. Sometimes those pretty places ends up being a 1/8 gallon coffee table centerpiece. But the fish will hate it :D just saying

If the tank is 2.5 Gallons and you stick a vase into it, you will make the 2.5 Gallon tank TINY.

The reason why Spazzfish can do this safely is because she's sticking a vase into a 10 gallon tank, which is fairly enormous, so unless their vase is 9 gallons or something, it won't really make a significant dent in the total tank area.

It's probably the optical effects of the vase when they disappear behind a certain angle in the glass/acrylic

I don't see anything wrong with desplay tanks aslong as they are suitable habitats. I like the keep Kyon in a tank that's been decorated well with clear glass and nice lighting because I want to see him. As long as the tank is big enough, cleaned well, heated and the betta is kept with suitable tank mates (if any) I don't see why you shouldn't have it as a center piece. Don't mean to sound rude or anything.
