Should We Keep Bowled Goldfish?

Bowled goldfish go mad. Bowled fish can't hide from prying eyes, search for food, or explore crevices. Water bowls can't carry enough oxygen, the sun drives it out, waste accumulates. Goldfish need masses of plants for oxygen, to hid in and explore, plus gravel for digging, and other goldfish. A bowel is no place for a goldfish. Would you bowl elephants?
