Question Is it weird that he never makes bubble nests?

So, I've had Gareth for a year and a half now, and he's never blown a bubble nest. I mean, he seems happy enough, and every once in a while, he puts a few bubbles up there, but no big nests (my Lancelot used to make huge nests, so it's a big contrast). Does this happen to anyone else?

He's fine. :) They blow bubble nests when they are ready to breed, not because they're happy. Some of mine have never blown one and some have.

Agreed, lack of bubble nest doesn't necessarily translate into "he's unhappy." Mine don't make bubblenests anymore. doesn't bother me.
