Cool bubble nests

I know a bubble nest just means that the betta is happy in his enviorment and its suitable for reproduction ( I am not breeding I am happy with one and its too much research and work) but I have a 5.5 gal tank and My beta Freddy has made it about a quarter of the tank I was just wondering how big they can get?

Bubble nests aren't actually a sign of happiness, just breeding readiness. There have been many cases of very sick Bettas making bubble nests in tiny little cups. When I was much younger, my best friend and her sister had one in a tiny, tiny, tiny little bowl, not much bigger than a 12 oz mug with very dirty water that they rarely changed and the entire thing was filled with bubbles and he continued to make tons of bubbles everyday until he got so sick he couldn't move from the bottom and he drowned. (I was very young and didn't have any fish yet, and I certainly didn't know any better than, and obviously, neither did they)
As for your other question, I have seen pictures of bubble nests expanding across most or all of the tank, so they can get quite big.

not sure how big they can get...but pretty big!!! when I put my last pair in the spawn tank, (divided of course) I left for the night and came home to see a bubble nest that took up wall to wall on 1/3 of a 10 gallon tank close to 1/2" high in some spots! haha it was amazing..and he kept working on it to get it bigger even after I let the female loose for a while so I'm sure they can get much bigger than that
