PLEASE do not keep a goldfish in a bowl!!!! They need at LEAST 20 gallons. Keeping it in a bowl is dooming it to die in its own ammonia in a weeks time. If it doesn't die from ammonia it will die a slow torture filled death. Yes fish 'grow to fit their environment' but only externally. Their internal organs continue to grow and they will eventually die from 'stunting.' If you cannot keep it in the tank find someone with a large tank or a pond to keep it it. You are torturing it keeping it alone in the bowl.
7 Fancy goldfish, 10 albino cories, Unknown amounts of ghost shrimp, 1 Male Betta, 1 Tiger Oscar, 1 Quaker Parrot, 2 Guinea Pigs, 3 Dogs, 1 Axolotl, 2 geckos, 1 Horse, and a Hubby
