Fish for a 1g bowl.

So I have a 1 gallon bowl I stole from my sister after she killed her carnival goldfish. I was housing a few baby ghost shrimp that came of my mommy shrimp. They died for a unknown reason so I am left with an empty bowl. Im not in a hurry to fill it because I have my hands full with my bettas and geckos, but I like to know my options. So is there any fish that can live in a 1g bowl. Preferably with no heat. Last time I had a tank with no heat it ran a 75 but now my 10g is 2 degrees warmer because of the summer so Im thinking it would run about 76-78. No Filter. Could I keep anything in that kind of habitat?

Im not sure if theres a cetain kind of goldfish that could be kept in the small bowl. without heat. i feel all fish deserve at least 2.5 -5 gallon tanks. we all have a preferance. I guess. and I couldnt not have a heater. I was in this pet store once. and the guy doesnt house the fish with any heaters. I think thats cruel. as many require heat. maybe some other people here have some ideas.

As far as I know all goldfish grow too big or are too messy. Im thinking maybe a few snails to see if they breed.

That sounds like an excellent Idea. I wonder what varieties of snails are best?

A fish in an unfiltered, unheated, 1G bowl? Never. Maybe some pond/pest snails.
