Suddenly very curious to know...

I have a fishbowl left over from my n00bier days of betta keeping, it is currently abandoned. I think it's 1-1.5 gallons, but not entirely sure. My question is if there is a fish (a tiny one XD) that might be comfortable living there. I'm fairly sure the answer is no, but i'm curious nonetheless.

Well, it is a fish bowl, and to me it feels just a bit small for a betta. I would feel especially bad because I have a ten gallon tank (currently being cycled) for my future betta...is there another fish breed that is small (not a schooling fish, obviously) that might be happier there?

No, there really isn't a small fish that doesn't school.

*laughs* I probably should have figured as much. Oh well! I might get a female betta to put in there, but still debating it. I don't want to cramp anyone x3
Thank you for the clarification

You could put in a snail and lots of live plants. Or you could make it a shrimp bowl with lots of live plants.

Your 1 gallon-ish fishbowl would be perfect to store a wet used Fish net or Gravel Siphon tube inbetween uses. Just fill it halfway with water and put those wet maintenance items inside for storage.

Make it a Terrarium! Those are so pretty if done right (And stylishly).
