It's about time! bubble nests :)

The other day I finally saw a bubble nest in Miyagi's tank...this AM saw them in No Nens and then in Lo Lings! Im so happy Lo Ling is making nests since hes the rescue! So far I havent seen one in Pho Phans (only when I very first got him) & I have a feeling No Nen wont be making them anymore since he just had a filter added today...seems to stop them from making bubbles :( ...but Im happy to see signs of bubble nest just the same :D

Bubble nests are instinct I have heard of dying fish making bubble bests. My male in the ten rarely makes bubble nests most of them are destroyed by filter so do not know how often he does that. Bubble nesting is not a sign of happiness or health. Now being active in bettas is a sine of health and non stress.

Health and happiness have nothing to do with bubble nesting. Bettas in small cold bowls bubble nest dying bettas bubble nest. There is an entire thread devotited to the myth.

My thread. What Choco said was true. http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=112600

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

Bettas in 60 degree Fahrenheit half gallon "tanks" make bubble nests. LebronTheBetta thank you for the thread link.

ok. Let me explain this.. A Betta Splendens builds a Bubble Nest out of instinct to establish there territory. Even though a Sick or "Dieing Betta might make a bubblenest they won't make one often. Compare this to a healthy, active and happy Betta. A healthy and happy Betta will make them more often and a larger percentage of Healthy/happy bettas will make them. So while it can't be used as a definite sign of health and happiness it can be used as a slight indication or it *might mean he is happy or healthy. The majority of my old Breeder males still did make them but not as often and they made small bubblenests.. So an indicator of age can factor in why a Betta may or may not be making a bubblenest... This is just a thought.. While I do somewhat agree with LTB's thread.. I still am sticking by the side of a large percentage/majority of healthy males will make a bubblenest with the right conditions.. But only a small percentage of sick and not properly housed males will make bubblenests.. If you were to walk into my fish area... A large majority of my males that are kept with adequate care and are young make bubblenests. But if you were to walk into my local LFS, LPS, Petsmart, or Petco.. Probably about 5 Out of 100 fish actually have a bubblenest

Ok, I understand. :) But Lebron is still messed up for not making any nests since the tank is cycled with a sponge filter on low. Probably the small surface current but it doesn't even bother his swimming underneath!

Only my males who have no current make them.l it seems like the slightest bit of movement disturbs them. It might also make the difference since they have an "anchor" a piece of IAL and have tannins.
