We've had two of these bowls, goldfish seemed happy in them, but both bowls cracked through the bottom for no reason after a few months. They were just sitting on the counter and suddenly started leaking water. I thought that the first one had a flaw that caused the crack, so I bought another one to replace it, but then the second one did the same thing. I'm just glad I was home so it did not leak all over and the fish did not die!!
I bought this for a young betta. It displays the fish well and is made of heavy, easy to clean glass. There is plenty of surface space for oxygen and lots of room for the fish to swim. At one gallon, there's plenty of space for a single fish, though I might move the fish to a larger, heated tank when the weather gets cold.
I guess you get what you pay for. This fish bowl is not masterfully crafted. Dream of seeing your tiny aquatic world in HD? Think again. The glass is fairly distorted, giving whatever's inside a few pockmarks and rough spots. That being said, it feels pretty sturdy. I have mine set up right now as a planted shrimp habitat.
Cannot house a fish at all. These are made to get a quick cent.
I put 2 small gold fish and they are very happy. I had to add rocks in the bottom so the fish wouldn't only hang out on the bottom though. No issues with these. I'm very happy with these and would recommend them.
Our betta had been in a 2.5 gallon filtered aquarium for about 6 months. He always hid, probably because of the current from the filter. I moved him to this bowl and set it on my desk a few months ago and he has never been happier. Maybe not the perfect set up for all bettas, but ours is much happier in here than he ever was in the bigger aquarium. He swims around and is always trying to get my attention. I agree that the shape of the bowl distorts the image and sometimes I have to look down from the top to find him, but to me it's worth the trade off to see our fish happy.
