Can Goldfish Live In A Bowl

This poor goldfish was found in Colombia in a shop where I used to cover my beer supply.

Goldfish can live in a bowl but not long. In the best case, goldfish living in a bowl that is regularly cleaned will live for a couple of years.  The worst scenario is the fish will be weakened from ammonia and nitrite poisoning and will die from a bacterial and/or parasitic infection, shown as dropsy.
