very nice - i will put this page as featured on mine (fish birthday parties) for people giving away fish at party. You have lots of good info - we have a goldfish at work living in bowl with no bubbler or filter. He is doing well. Just gotta care for it right :O) You did good job of discussing it. Rule of thumb - at least one gallon of water per fish. so if in bowl, be sure there is only 1-2 fish - and be sure it matches up 1-2 gallons. Our one fish has 2 gallons to himself. but is happy as can be and over 3 years old (in rehab clinic)

First off, goldfish CAN survive in a bowl like the one you described. I have kept goldfish in bowls on my counter lots of times. Goldfish are different than other fish in many aspects, they don't need a heater, they don't need a filter (although regular water changes and bowl cleaning is a must), and they will live just fine without any bubbles at all if yodon'tnt want them there.
