Question about water.

I recently decided to get a male beta. He is in a 2.5 gal tank...all to himself. The people at the pet store told me test kits were not needed but I am getting foam on the top of the water. I've only had him for a week and I feel that he is thriving. I keep scooping the foam off the top of the water. What exactly IS this? I had a 10 gallon community tropical tank years ago with a male beta but don't remember having this problem. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance. :)

So should I continue scooping it off? I've read that bubble nests mean that he is happy with his environment.

It won't hurt anything. You can just leave it there. Its a good sign and means that he is healthy.

Keep it! In fact, it can be a good warning sign that your guy isn't feeling good if the bubble nest suddenly disappears.

its probly a bubble nest you should keep.
unless you've been washing his tank with soap or somthing. but since he's "thriving" i assuming he's active and eating well.
