fish bowl question

I had recently purchased a glass 1 G fish bowl for a temporary home for my new female betta Sugar (who is the tiniest little thing i've ever seen).
I had never had a fish bowl before and was extremely disappointed in the lack of visibility, and the distorted/magnified view of my little girl.

just for future knowledge, for buying containers to use during water changes, qt, etc. ..do the plastic fish bowls have the same distorted view as the glass ones?

thanks! :)

yes it will .. the curved-ness of the bowl will always create that magnified .. goggle-eyes look ..

even the bow tanks can have that magnified vision but it's not as bad as a bowl

bowls are a pain to take care of in the long run ^_^ i only keep mine around as a hospital tank

i'd invest in a small tank .. easier care .. and easier see and to take pictures of your little guy

All of my bowls have the flat sides, which helps a lot. :)

And plastic tends to be less warped.
