So I was helping some family and came across these little glass "bowls" that weren't being used. They're pretty small, I'd say maybe 0.5 gal (that's just rough measuring from filling a water jug).
But they're definitely bigger than the little cups they keep them in in pet stores lol... (I know I know.. those aren't optimal or long-term conditions).
I definitely wouldn't be able to put a filter in these in any way, but I am very active with my fresh/salt water tanks as it is, and changing 50% water a week would be cake compared to some of the other maintenance I do :)
As for a heater, I'm thinking I would probably have to buy one of those circular pad ones meant for the little 1.5 gal tanks? Something similar?
I want to be a responsible fish owner, and I really like the bettas, so I'm doing my research first.
Would these little bowls be ok for a single Betta?
I'd probably set them up with a light sand bed and a tiny java fern from my other tank.
What do you guys think?
