I wouldn't get it. You should get at least a 2 gallon or more.

2.5 or larger is usually what is recommended.

Yeah, it may be a little pricier, but a 2 gallon or larger is definitely recommended. It will benefit your betta in the longrun!

yep, a 2 gallon bowl would work, or you could get a ten gallon tank! doesn't really matter, but I would reccomend getting a heater, and something for the betta to hide under or inside of! :)

Awesome! most tanks don't come with heaters, but they do usually come with filters.... If you can find one that comes with a heater, awesome!

thanks for answering!! i found a fish bowl my brothers had for their fish, and i only have 20.00 $ to spend (i have to pay with my own money and im only 12 years old) so im gunna use the fish bowl for a while until i can buy i good tank i think the fish bowl will be ok for a while because i can get 20.00$ in about two months and i will have a some extra money to (that added up is about 30.00$) and i think that wll be good enough for a right sized tank.

I think the fish bowl will be fine until you can get a tank. Just remember to keep up with your water changes.
