Question Super Active Lil' Dudes?

Both of my bettas are pretty active little guys/gals. Jabu-Jabu is almost always busy swimming up and down, left and right, flaring at his reflection because of the way the light hits the tank or investigating something. Ruto, my new girl, is to a bit lesser extent just as active it seems, too.

Is this a good thing? Always active betta = Healthy, happy betta?

Jabu-Jabu doesn't seem to be into making bubble nests, which is why I'm a tad confused. He made one when he was in his smaller, temp tank. Hasn't made one since being put into his 10g. There are sometimes what seems to be the beginning of one that never gets finished.

My betta is really active as well. I don't think it's a bad thing. And not all bettas make bubble nests. :)

I'm actually a bit worried now...

Jabu-Jabu seems to be writhing around crazily and then stopping for a few seconds to breathe super hard, super still. He hasn't done anything but swim around crazily and stop like I described above for about the last hour.

Is he ok? Something I can do to chill him out?

Try turning out the lights for a bit. That can be calming.

How is the temperature in the tank? Have you tested the water parameters (ammonia etc)?
