Can you fit 4 fish in one gallon fish bowl measuring 12 by 12 inches?

It may be possible to keep 4 small fish in a one gallon fish bowl, depending on the type, size and needs of the fish you choose. It will also depend on whether or not the fish bowl has a filter, and if your fish can live without a heater. For example, because they do not get large, 4 white cloud minnows can be kept in a one gallon bowl with a filter and they do not require a heater. You can also keep a male beta or Siamese fighting fish with a few white cloud minnows; or 2 small goldfish which can grow too large or the bowl.

What if you put dragon fish angelfish catfish and goldfish all in one tank?

In all probability they will die. Some catfish (there are hundreds of species of catfish)are cold water fish and others are tropical so I can not say about that. The only fresh water"Dragonfish" I know of is the Gobie (Gobioides broussonnetii) and it is definitely a very tropical fish and a very hard to keep little fish at that. Angel fish would handle the same conditions as the Gobie but Goldfish are a coldwater fish and certainly would not handle the conditions that the Angelfish and the Gobie require to survive.

Can mollies live in a bowl?

No. You should never put any fish in a bowl. 1. They don"t live as long in bowls rather than they do in tanks. 2. With a bowl you would have to clean it out every three days. 3. The fish will be miserable in a bowl so a bowl is a bad idea. If you cant afford a tin gallon tank then get a five gallon it"s small and it will make your fish much happier rather than living in a bowl. Your fish will thank you for not putting them in a bowl. Hope this helped.

How many times do you need to clean a fish bowl?

It depends how big it is. If it is a small bowl not even a gallon then it should have it's water changed every day. If it is a larger bowl about 5 gallons it should have it's water changes Avery 2-3 days. It is best that your fish does not live in small bowls unless you have a betta fish. 10 Gallon fish tanks are very cheap and it is a good idea to buy one for your fish if you are just using a bowl.

How many 6 to 4 inch fish can you have in a 1.5 gallon fish bowl?

The rule to follow for freshwater fish is 1 inch per gallon. For goldfish is it one fish per 10 gallons, and for bettas it is 1 fish per 1 gallon. Fish bowls really are not the best home for any fish. Fish need to be kept in tanks with heaters and fliters.

How much is a small fish bowl?

The price of a small fish bowl is about $24.99! A small fish bowl with nothing in it that holds a gallon of water, costs about $6-$10. You can get them at PetSmart or Walmart. Betta fish don't need a filter but other fish do. So, that will add on to the price of the bowl. Most people like to put something in the bowl, again, that will cost you extra. So, it really depends on how much you want or need in the bowl.

No fish is best for a bowl, buy at-least a one gallon tank with filter, and you will clean it once every 2 to 4 weeks, a bowl will have to be cleaned every week. Also, your fish can swim better with more room, become less bored, and will be happier. If this is above your budget, fish is not for you.
