My betta has made several bubble nests in the past however; he has not made one recently (last month or so). Yet, he has lots of mucous in his bowl. Mostly floating at the top in strings but some in mid-float and some at the bottom. It makes the water not clear and it makes a coat on the surface of the water. When he gets blood worms, when they touch the water, it pushes the coat away from where they fall.
I want to make sure he's not sick or anything. It has been going on since he stopped making bubble nests a month ago. (I do not breed him, he is just my pet friend).
