If you work on the basic rule of 1 inch of fish to 1 gallon on water, your bowl isn’t really suitable for either; you need about 4-5 females for every 1 male guppy, which would be a minimum of 5 fish, which may put strain on your filter. And they breed like rabbits, so your bowl would very quickly become over filled, probably resulting in the death of all the fish… You’d also need a heater if you wanted to put tropical fish in it, and I’m not even sure if you can get them that small… tbh I would recommend you buy a tank, with at least 60 litres… (apparently about 15 gallons…) If you’re adamant about using the bowl, and you have a heater you should go for the siamese fighter, as they can be kept alone and don’t tend to grow that big…
