Talking The Bubblenest thread!

Hey everybody!

As most of you know, my betta fish, Honeycomb, lives in a 10 gallon tank by himself. I have had for almost 2 years now and he has NEVER made a bubble nest. Upon waking up yesterday, i found a VERY small (pretty decent though) strip of bubbles running lengthwise all around the tank! At first i thought it was because i used a small amount of melafix for his torn fin, but i have used more melafix than that without any bubbles. But now, i can actually SEE him making the nest! I am so excited, even if his nest is small, that he is happy! Cant wait to see how it grows!

Note: He made the nest after i did a water change and did i pretty thorough cleaning. I also moved around the plants, and filled the water up WAy higher than i usually do (less thank an inch from the top). The filter current is now not as strong (he swims around asier) and now that the heater is submerged more, the water stays at about 78-80 degrees! I finally know what to do to make him happy after 2 years!



I will try to get a pic uploaded soon!


Please share your little guy's (and girls?) bubble nests!!!

Congrats!! Unfortunately, Lebron has made 4 Bubblenests since he came. I NEVER got a Pic of them!! Hard to believe, right? :( I'm going to do a 100% Water Change soon, so maybe that would encourage him. ;)
