I agree with you, Chocolate. I have a terrible time catching my fish in a bowl.

In case anybody is interested, I think this is interesting commentary on the fish bowl discussion/debate: http://finatics.hubpages.com/hub/why...-for-your-fish

"Bowl" as a word though does have a very specific definition; it refers to the shape of the container. That being said, I was an English Language Arts Major and am now an Education major at the graduate level so I am rather particular and literal when it comes to these things.

I think most bowls ignore lids Bettas have to jump to survive the dry season were most die. But in the rest of the year are in huge bodies of water. There natural habitat is large bodies of stagnant water which is low in oxygen.

I personally think that rectangular tanks are nicer because they usually hold more water and they look nicer. The shape makes for less skewed viewing to me...

Yah. The bowl makes your fish looked messed up, and distorted half of the time.

Square tanks hold more fish too. A sweaty gallon bowl holds less fish than a twenty gallon prism. The surface to oxygen ratio or gas exchange is different,
