Any bettas enjoying the heat?

Does anybody else have a betta who absolutely loves the heat right now?

We just got up to 95 with humidty, and Buddha ended up making a bubble nest around noon. It's about a inch high and 3 inches long. He's also swimming around a lot, and he flared at me before haha

I can tell he's happy, and I'm glad :)
The water temp went up a bit on its own as well, considering how my room was like 80 degrees o.O

So yea, is anyone else's betta changing with the weather?

Baby Buddha(M VT) ~ Oddball (M-DeTxHM)~ Little Chai ~ Lucky(F oto)

I seem to have a problem with collecting things with scales and fins. Oops

My Lunos is hating it..I have to take off the tank's top and mount a fan on the wall above it to cool the water down. Going to make a new top with a larger gap in the back so that more air can enter the tank because this summer is going to be a bad one here in Florida.

Oh, MAN, are Prince Kaida and Ben enjoying it. This morning I woke up to an enormous bubblenest spanning a good quarter of the water's surface in the prince's tank, and a really thick one in Benvolio's tank. My mother refuses to turn the AC on, so it's 85*F on average indoors during the day and 75-80 during the night.

My Betta Buddies:
Male
Prince Kaida (VT)
Bentley (DT)

Female
Roxanne (VT)
Elle (CT)
Korra (CT)
Candy (VT)

Rest in peace, Ralph, Xiang, and Violet...I'm sorry you didn't live to see better care!

It's winter here, so keeping my tanks warm enough is the problem right now. :p Luckily my biggest tank is staying warmer than it did last year, as I've taken to using clingfilm as a lid.

Life.

I guess I'm about to find out in a few days. The temperatures here have been rising steadily and it is getting harder to cool my apt. I just did a recent water change, so I won't know for a few days, but I'll let you know if I see a change in their behavior as well. Both of my males have not yet experienced summer weather with me since I have had both of them under a year.

Mine is happy and so am I! His heater hasn't arrived in the mail yet so this heat has been helping me out. His tank temperature hasn't dropped below 75 degrees, even at night!

Haha it's interesting how all the bettas have different reactions to the heat :)

Buddha is still enjoying it. He's swimming alot more than he used to

*Squeals* Poseidon built himself a nice size bubblenest. He never blows nests and if he does they're small and disappear quickly. His aquarium has been holding steady at a comfortable 80 degrees.
