What do you think of large betta bowls, that are at least 3 gallons and have a small filter and heater, and maybe some plants? I think they're ok, as long as they are filtered and heated.

It works, but the roundness of the bowl distorts a betta's vision, which can scare them. Bowls aren't ideal in my opinion, but they do work

+1 exactly why I don't like jars or bowls, the glass distorts vision and potentially can cause problems

How do we know that the roundness creates problems? Any more than a bowfront tank. Or for that matter, how do we know sharp corners of a traditional square tank aren't disorienting for fish?
