Comments
This Fish Bowl Kit includes a 1.5-gallon plastic bowl with a plastic cover, your choice of one Male Betta or one Female Betta (your choice), one Live Aquatic Plant, a 3" Fish Net, the correct amount of Cultured Gravel and Lava Rock, plus a bottle of Water Conditioner.

You'll need to get some fish food as listed below in the paragraph titled Recommended Diet.

Note: for many years we sold this kit with two Aquatic Snails, but under current Federal Law it's not legal to ship snails across state borders without a special federal permit for each state. The cost of the permits is so high that it precludes shipping snails. So we do cannot ship snails at this time, and we do not include them in this kit, but we still recommend snails, and encourage you to find them in your local fish stores.

Why Does This Fish Bowl Kit Work?
Several visitors to this site have sent us comments, saying that they were worried that one Betta are too many animals in one bowl.

We appreciate their concern for these animals, and it might seem like too many animals. But the crucial test is to actually try it, and we have tried it many many times. It works. Why?

   
1.5-gallons is 6-quarts and that's a pretty big fish bowl. We might put one Betta in a half gallon bowl but 1.5-gallons is much better.
 
Notice we recommend putting the bowl in a cool part of your home where the water is 65 to 75-degrees F. not 78 to 80.

The lower temperature allows more oxygen in the water and less fish waste because the animals' metabolism is slower.
 

The cultured gravel provides a lot of surface area that is covered with the essential nitrifying bacteria that turn fish waste into almost harmless residue.

Click here to learn more about gravel and biological filtration.
 

The piece of Lava Rock provides a place for anaerobic bacteria to live and denitrify the water in the fish bowl.

Click here to learn more about using Lava Rock to denitrify water.
 

We recommend that you change 20% of the water at least twice a week and replace it with bottled drinking water.

Click here for more about changing water in fish bowls.
 

We recommend that you feed premium fish food, because these foods leave less residue after being digested than most foods.

Click here for more about premium fish foods.
 

We strongly recommend you check your fish bowl 10-minutes after each feeding. If there is any uneaten food, remove it with a small net.

Click here for more about feeding your fish.
 

These animals are adults and have low metabolic rates. Why is that important?

Because they'll metabolize less food, so they'll eat less food, so they'll produce less waste, the water will stay clean, and they'll remain healthy.
 

We know that one small goldfish will not do well in a fish bowl, so we don't recommend putting goldfish in bowls.

It took us a long time to find the unique combination of this large bowl with the right amount of cultured gravel, lava rock, food, and animals that fit together and do very well together.
 

This isn't just a "first thing we thought of" combination that might work.

It's the pieces of a puzzle that finally fitted together to produce a combination that does work.

Cautionary Comments
A couple of good folks have sent comments saying that they took this plan for this kit, then went out and "bought all the parts and put it together, but it doesn't seem to be working."

We checked and found out they had gravel but not cultured gravel, or they couldn't find any Lava Rock that's nontoxic.

The cultured gravel and Lava Rock are essential, and this combination doesn't work well without them.

We'll be glad to ship you the cultured gravel and Lava Rock, or the entire kit, and anything else you need.

But please for sake of the animals do the entire plan, or it may not work.

 
 

Size and Lifespan
Most of these animals can live for 2 to 3 years in this fish bowl.
