You probably want something that is 1/2 gallon or more, but sometimes you can have .3 gal. or .4 gallon, but those are for the small ones. If you get a crowntail betta. DEFINITELY get one 1/2 gallon or more.

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.

It is best that all fish have a filter besides Betta fish. Betta fish don't need filters cause the filter pushes them over with their big fins.

How often should you clean a goldfish bowl with one goldfish in it?

If you want your goldfish tolive then you should move it into a tank of at least 10 gallons. Goldfish are extremely messy so depending on the size of the bowl and the size of the goldfish you may have to clean it as often as everyday! Remember to always use a dechlorinator.However regardless of how big the fish is right now it will be developmentally stunted if not moved into a bigger container/tank.Only betta fish can live in a bowl.When I got my goldfish my friend who has a Betta and goldfish told me that her fish are BOTH in a bowl and her one just died because it was overfed But she will have them for 2 and a half years in September.

How do you clean a betta fish bowl?

It's pretty simple. I've watched my mom do if with our three past fish (Beta, Troy, and Fin) and our present fish (Bubbles). First of all, u fill a plastic bowl with water and take your net and catch the fish. Put the fish in the bowl. After that, take a strainer and pour the water through the strainer. The pebbles or rocks should fall into the strainer (if u have plants or decorations, be sure to remove them). Set the rocks and pebbles aside. DO NOT USE SOAP. Take a wet rag and wipe out the fish bowl. DO NOT USE SOAP. Dump the rocks in and put in all of the decorations. Fill the fish bowl with bottled water. Take the net again and put your fish back into the fish bowl. Good luck!Well I have a betta in a 1 gallon bowl (he's doing fine! =D) and I use a net to take him out of the bowl and put him in a container big enough for him to swim around. For a few weeks only change some of the water in the bowl. After maybe few weeks and when the bowl's really dirty take out all the water, rinse out the ENTIRE bowl to make sure it's really clean. And then you put warmish water in the bowl and put water cleaner for betta fish in the bowl. Then you're ready to go!Tips: Make sure you don't let the betta fish jump out of the net (once my betta did that and almost died)Don't scare your fish make sure to take the fish out carefully and don't shock him or paralyze him.That's pretty much it and I hope you have a healthy fish! =D

You have 1 betta fish can it live with your other 2 goldfish in the same bowl?

The first rule of fish keeping is "1 inch of fish needs a minimum of 1 gallon of water" Your 'bowl' is not big enough to keep one fish healthy let alone two and a Betta. Goldfish are coldwater fish and need temperatures around 55F. Bettas are tropical fish and need temperatures around 80F so you can see that they should not be kept together anyway.Simple answer is NO. They need totally different living conditions. 1 Betta needs a 5 gallon (nominal) tank. Two goldfish need a 25 gallon tank.
