Post Cichlids and fish bowls

Random question, I just wanted to be 100% sure although I think the answer will be no, but can you keep a cichlid in a fish bowl?

Glad you thought to ask.

They need room to swim, and air and possibly heater, a filter. A bowl will not provide enough water to keep the water parameters stable or at a safe level.

A snail perhaps, frequent water changes - or shrimp with much research and understanding of what and how to care for it, as well as a period of maturing the contents to grow biofilm.
