    hello and welcome i would go with the betta angel fish get way to big for a bowl and need at least a 30 gallon high with filter and heater but with a betta you could get a 2-3 gallon bowl with a air pump and you could have a betta and a snail in there

    In my experience hardy fish for newbies are Black-skirt Tetra and Betta. I guess you just want something simple, right? A male Betta is beautiful, but he does not swim much. If you want to add a moving element into the room, then get a pair of Black-skirt Tetra. The bowl should be at least one gallon (approx 3.8 liters).

    An unfiltered bowl is totally unsuitable for blackskirts and especially a 1 gallon bowl (I'd even be hesitant to put them in a filtered 10 gallon tank - they may only get 2", but they really should be kept in groups).

    And although a betta can survive in an unfiltered tank, a 1 gallon really isn't suitable (it's too small to cycle, and you'd have to do 100% water changes every day too keep the ammonia down and that can be very stressful for the betta).
