My new guy is bubblenesting!

My new Crownie started blowing Bubble nests today! I am so happy. It's so cute. He's also really active, in spite of his injured pec fins, which I'm still treating with Aqua salt. I'm so glad I got him. He has already brought me such happiness. And he's SUCH a little dancer. He wriggles at me all the time. He's such a cutie!

Aww, congrats. I haven't had any luck with bettas in the past but I came home on Christmas Day after spending time with the family and Tvarscki made his first bubblenest! Unfortunately, had to do a big water change and it went bye-bye. :( But I hope he builds me another one soon.

Tvarscki - black/blue veiltail - joined the family 12/17/2010

Why do males do that even when they are alone? Is it an instinctive thing? Is there anything you can do to encourage them to make the bubblenest?
