2.5 gallons(aka aprox 10 litres) is it too much or enough? I don't wanna keep my fishy in a bowl T_T
Yeah, I'm sure a bunch of people will say otherwise.
However, I would just ask you to consider this. The question really is, what is the minimum to keep alive, and what is the minimum to keep them happy and live long lives. As I'm sure you can guess, those are two different things.
You can keep a human alive in a closet for many decades, giving them a plate of food 3 times a day and emptying their chamber pot daily. They can even show signs of happiness and affection. But would they live as happy of a life as a person with a 1 bedroom apartment? Or a 3 bedroom house? Or a 10 bedroom mansion
