Male guppy made a bubblenest?!?!

I walked over to my male guppy's 5g and I saw 2 bubblenests! How did he do that?

10 Gallon Tank:
~Countless Pond Snails~1 Espe's Rasbora~1 Harlequin Rasbora~

5 and 5.5 Gallon Tanks:
~empty~

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

Does he have a filter in there? If so, its probably what made it. Only Anabantids(Gourami,Betta) make bubble nest, it isn't characteristic of other species. Antabantids only use it for breeding, and since guppies are livebearers, it really wouldn't make sense for them to make one.

Also, no non-labyrinth fish can make them, as far as I am aware. They don't have the right respiratory structure. (This could be incorrect, though).

Life.
