I would of thought that a fish bowl is not sutible so i would keep it in a normal tank with half of it filled with water and half with land.
im not sure but i would think that the water should be at least 8 cm deep with plenty of weeds in and for the land part it should have a sheltered hiding place and the rest should be damp.As for the lighting and heting...
i have no idea...
but i think that depends if its tropical.
hope this information is useful dispite that you asked about this subject 2 years ago
