I'm Aquascaping this 3G bowl coming in tomorrow evening. (2 of them)

I have drift wood, java moss, java fern and adding 1-2 more plants. I need to pick up a few things to finish it so it might take a while with Thanks Giving guests arriving soon.

oh I forgot 1 ram horn snail and beta in each. I have a 3rd Betta but I bought him after I ordered the bowls so he might go in a cube.

That is a real nice looking bowl. What kind(total watts lighting) do you have shining on top of the tank and are you using any kind of filter in the bowl. It does not look like you are. Just curious. Thanks.

Bettas shouldn't be in tanks less than 2.5 gallons with a filter and heater.

Well it is a 3 gal bowl, and the bettas look fine to me, even tho it's not filled to the brim, 2 gallons is just fine for a betta.76 degrees is also fine for the betta, i've had one in colder temps, so I doubt those bettas need a heater and as long as the water is changed weekly, they will be more than ok

True, 76 is fine for a Betta, but they come from Thailand which is close to the equator (which means hot temperatures year-round).

They still need a filter as well.

I once had a 1G Fish bowl running but I killed the Zebra Danio on accident(after that, I got rid of the plants,substrate, moved the betta in a TANK and disinfected the bowl...I hated it after that!) and the betta died a month ago from some bacterial infection. Anyways, here's the pics(it grewe out after this photo but, it was REALLY pretty):

The water measured is pretty close to 3 full gallons I think the bowl description put 3 gallons as how much liquid it can hold since it was not intended for fish but for punch.

It's in a really hot room in our home now that's 76 and it's freezing outside. We have to keep our home warmer for medical reasons. So it'll probably be 78-80 in summer.

I have substrate coming in, that - snails and moss do great for water cleansing. I change the water weekly and at that point it still looks clean.

This is the first new home where they made bubble nests on the first day so I know they like it. Lots more betta dancing going on.

Oh and the front view magnifies the fish/dw/plants big time if you look at the top view - it's a neat effect!
