Unhappy I Feel Like A Terrible Betta Mom... =(

Turbo had his first water change today, and he's doing well. He seems to be enjoying it all. However, his bubble nest didn't survive the procedure. <.> He keeps going over to where his bubble nest used to be, like "Where did it go?? O.O!".. I feel so bad. =( My poor baby. He worked so hard on it...

Yeahh, we all face that. Today Charlie made his first bubblenest, but I had to destroy it for a water change. When I put him back in he was wiggling and dancing, like "Where'd you put it, ma?". Don't feel bad; he'll build a new one before you know it(: Charlie just previously built one twice the size, and he's content again(:

Zidane doesn't mind it. instead, he builds a new MONSTER bubble nest. >w< i think he enjoys bubble nesting so much, it doesn't upset him to see his old one missing. o.0

My female started making nest before my male did... o.o. But he eventually did, and I was so ecstatic! I just checked up on him, and when he saw me, he did a little dance and his tale knocked out a fourth of his nest D: He instantly started rebuilding it :D It's impossible to NOT love betta fish!

That's so cute. =] I love bettas! There are bits of bubble nest floating in the tank. :( Poor Turbo.. I think he's forgotten about it now, though. He's busy stalking his reflection on the heater... xD Cute little guy.

My fish does the same thing. He is obsessed with the heater. Flares at it constantly. But he hasn't built a bubble nest yet.

1 14 gallon filtered, heated tank: Betta FREEDOM and three platys Sunshine, Sunny, and Orange. Three live plants and a couple of hitchhiker pond snails.
