What do you all think the definition of a bowl is too you size or shape?

To me, a "bowl" is a container of a certain shape, and has nothing to do with size. For example, the Biorb was designed to be a "fish friendly fish bowl".

I actually like fish bowls; I think they're pretty. They're seamless and have a soft fluidity to their shape that I like. I don't own any, because I think it would be awkward to try to put a cover on one to keep the fish from leaping out. As long as a bowl is heated and large enough, I don't see the problem....

same i agree. i like them (when they're large enough..at least 3 gallons) but i don't have any. i think they get most of their bad rep for the tiny size they come in. i fed my neighbor's bettas when they went on vacation and they were literally in cup sized bowls..it was upsetting

I saw a bowl in the crafts area at the local Wal-mart that could easily hold 2 gallons and could fit a small heater. It could even fit a small cave and plants. Let's say I was veeeery tempted. It was only $9.99.

I call anything that is too small to be heated and/or filtered a bowl.

I have one of those, but it was the even bigger version (it was either 14.99 or 19.99) it worked great as a betta "bowl" lol

Well I will be acquiring the table for my 20 g finally so I can get it set up and get my plakat king girls (4 from Petsmart and a totally awesome and random find here in Puerto Rico Petsmart) from my friend as well as adding Rudy to the tank. Maybe then I could you know get the aforementioned bowl to put on one of the shelves so it can house a pretty boy yet to be bought Cursed betta addiction!

Personally I do not like round tanks netting fish is almost impossible to net them if they need to be moved.

It's the shape that classifies it as a bowl for me. Might I also add I prefer the drum type bowls to the round ones.
