he is building a bubble nest. That is completely normal. The males are the ones that tend to the eggs and the fry once they hatch. I don't know about the white spot, but my male hangs out by his heater a lot too.

Oh geez, I didn't realize you triple posted. Copy pasting:

Regarding the bubbles, your Betta is just making a bubble nest! That's normally seen as a good sign since it generally indicates he's actually thinking about procreating.

For the white spot, yes, please post the picture as soon as you have it ready.

It would also help to fill out the form here for more information:
