Nesting

Narcissus has been bubble nesting for several days now. He likes to keep up with it everyday it seems like. He either expands it or fixes little holes in the nest. Does this mean he's really happy? Or loving the ladies in the tank next door? ( my male and female tanks are by each other and he was a view of them). I need to do a water change today but I don't want to destroy what he has created, is there a way that I can change the tank water without disrupting his master piece?

Can try to scoop it into a bowl and then gently place it back in.. but he will make another if it is destroyed. He can be doing it to attract the ladies, or marking his territory or if there is a weather system going through your area.

What do you mean if there's a weather system going through?

Definitely the ladies in the tank next door. Most of my males will keep a very nice bubble nest going off and on for the neighbor ladies. You know, just in case :P I wouldn't worry about wrecking it, he'll make another one.
