I know the whole vase thing isn't a proper setting for them, but in Elmo's the plant seems small and allows him enough room to get air. I like that its actually under the rocks on the bottom instead of on top like vases. I've heard that these plants can cause ammonia to build up faster though; anyone else have opinions on that?

well normally peace lilies don't survive in a 1 gallon bowl, but it really survived in there and i have long since replanted the peace lily in my front yard. its doing well surprisingly. as for elmo i think i stated that he had passed away a few months ago. Grinchie and Heidi are both doing well. thanks!

SHEESH! Too big! There is NEVERsuch thing as too big for bettas. Contrary to popular belief, most bettas enjoy tanks upwards of 5-10 gallons, and will most likely be healthier and happier!

lol heidi is very tiny right now she is only a few days old hasn't grown that big yet and she isn't really my fish... she belongs to my client. on the contrary she is very happy. every time i go over there she races to one side of the bowl wherever i am sitting. she is very active and so dern cute too.

I hope you will send your client here to learn about proper Betta care. Betta are tropical fish and need to be in water with a temp of 76 at least to be at their best and healthy for a long and happy life. Bettas can live up to 4 years.
