Large fish bowl

Does anyone know where I can get a large fishbowl. I've seen several in pictures and youtube videos but I can't seem to find any accept for the biorbs. I'm looking for between a 2 and 4 gallon bowl, not the drum style bowls, just a regular shape bowl. The largest I have been able to find is a 1.5 gallon on walmarts online store and a 1.75 gallon at petsmart that has a stem like a large brandy/wine glass. I contemplated the wine looking glass but I'm too afraid of the chance of the stem breaking because I read a review or 2 where that actually happened apparently for no reason.

Hi I just purchased by Betta yesterday..I have read a lot about heaters, different variations of need or not need. Is there a reliable heater for a 1.5 gallon bowl. Thanks

There are a few. I have a hydor betta bowl heater I picked up at petco, but i have not actually used it quite yet. I'm still looking for the bowl, but it says that it can heat up to a 5 gallon bowl.

Here it is. http://www.amazon.com/Hydor-7-5w-Hea...s=betta+heater

Have you tried Amazon? I found this 2.75 gallon bowl on there.

http://www.amazon.com/Natures-Aquari..._petsupplies_4

It looks like it's decent quality, and has high ratings.

The other thing you might look at, especially if you're not needing a lid on it, is apothecary jars. I've seen some of those at 2+ gallons, easily.

This is perfect... I don't know how you found it. I have searched hundreds of pages on amazon looking for something like this. it looks almost perfect. I will see if there are any other suggestions before I pull the trigger but great find and thank you for sharring.

I bought 3 2.5 gallon bowls on amazon. But they are drum style. My baby betta girl is growing up in one as we speak! She's getting a 5 gallon soon.

Amazon is tricky. I spent months trying to find a 20 long on there before giving up. Glad it works!
