Unhappy No Bubble Nest? :c

Hello fellow bettaluvers,

I am currently cycling a 10gal for my buddy, Zuko. he's currently in a 2.5gal :T he's always seemed happy building bubble nests to the point where the pile up but however, he stopped making them around a month or more ago i heard that bettas make bubble nests when they're happy and healthy. Zuko hasn't been acting any different and isn't sick, but isn't making his beautiful, unique nests.

any ideas? will he start to make them once he's in a bigger and happier enviornment?

Bowls=for cereal... so you eat bettas?

Sometimes Betta fish makes nests due to changes in barometric pressure and whatever,..
Bubble nesting isn't a sign of happiness or health, just what fish do in an attempt to pass down their genes.

My betta hasnt made a bubble nest in goodness knows how long. he's happy and healthy :)

My male only makes nests when there's a storm coming through.
As far as health and happiness, it's not true. Many, many years ago, my best friend's sister had a Betta, and she kept it in an 8 oz glass. She hardly ever changed the water, it was so dirty, you could hardly tell what color he was, and his fins and tail were so clamped they looked like little strings. Yet, he had a huge bubble nest that overflowed his cup and would build it up again after the rare water change.

I have just had to reduce the temp in my community tank to stop a male dwaf gourami from bubble nesting !

The problem with them is they also rip up plants to put in there

My Buddy will stop making nests for long periods of time, then out of the blue suddenly start again, he's happy and healthy (mine lets you KNOW when he's unhappy.)
