cleaning beta fish glass bowl
knocked it on the granite counter...big crack in it
did not break into a million shards
but unable to be a fish home now

anyone have an extra fish bowl
might have to brave a store today (how bad are stores day after christmas?)

nighttime (the beta fish) may have to live in my largest pot until i brave the stores
maybe he wants to change houses and live in a tall glass flower vase?

do beta fish need a typical fish bowl shape
or can a tall slim glass container do the trick
i notice beta lets out some foam stuff (normal for this kind of fish- but do not know what it is, or anything much about these not want to kill it)

    Betas can live anywhere!

  • I think you can use anything as long as they have SOME room. And I do actually have an extra fish bowl from our last beta, ha!

  • that looks like a peace lily. Beta's can live in any shape "bowl". The bubbles they blow they at the surface are like a "nest" and they only do that when they are "happy" (or so I've been told).

  • Daylily you are on the money but I think it is a corl plant which grows well in water. Betas do need some air/water surface and can do quite nicely in a glass vase.
