Question Happy or Healthy Baby Betta

Hi, I was wondering if a bubble nest means the betta is happy and healthy ? I know it means he is ready to mate. But my baby betta is building the biggest nest I've seen it covers the whole surface of his tank and I have to spoon out mustr of the nest to where he can get air.

Does that mean he is happy and healthy?

There's no way to say whether they're really "happy" or not (though I'd like to think so) but usually a betta wont do that unless he is healthy. So I would say yes, you have a happy healthy fish. :)

Kindness and respect should be shown to all animals, no matter if they are furry, scaly, big, or small. Be a hero to the animals and GO VEGAN!

It means he's becoming an adult. Bubble nests are territory markers for bettas. They also serve as a place for the eggs to hatch and fry to develop during the first few days.

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

Too add, I don't think it's an indicator of health. Some members on here mention seeing sick betta's in the dirty cups making bubblenests too.

Keep yourself clean and bright, for you are the window through which you must see the world.

No it doesn't, sorry. They use it to mark territory and for mating. That's a myth that someone in the world made up. :/

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!
