around 7 months ago I had to move my neon tetras because they were slowly being eaten, the only safe tank I had was an unheated goldfish bowl with some newts and frogs in, so I added the neons and not one of them had died, now I realise that the bowl is in my house so it is never really cold, but still it makes my goldfish bowl much nicer that if I just had a goldfish in it.
I was wondering if anyone else has had simmelar experiences with neons or other fish.
I tried to add a betta, but it died 3 days later, I can only guess it was too cold for it.

Many danio's and other barbs will survive in a unheated goldfish bowl.

My mom had a couple of zebra danio's in a fishbowl, and after most of them died because she neglected them, she had enough of it, and I dropped the last surviver in my own, heated tank (without acclimatizing it first...). It started eating immedeately after it hit water, and it's still alive after three months.

just out of curiosity what colour is your betta?
because I have never been able to keep a red one with neons, but blue ones have always been fine.
