Unhappy Platy Fish in a Betta Bowl...??

Hi Everyone,

So my brothers girlfriend just got a new fish tank. She has guppies and platies. Shes very inexperienced. Today she brought me a platy that she said was killing her other fish. The thing is I dont have a fish tank anymore. All I have is a 2 gallon tank with an interal filter that houses Ish the Fish, a betta.

So I set up a fish bowl for the platy. I DO NOT want to move my betta to the bowl. Will the platy live long in a fish bowl? I dont really have the cash to buy a new set up for a platy. Hes an exceptionally small platy. If I give him to her she will flush him. And I dont know anyone with a fish tank.

Any information would be helpful .

Whatever the circumstances, the platy needs an aquarium with sufficient space and a bowl is not going to provide that. Perhaps a local fish store will take it, if they know the circumstances?
