Question Do your betta(s) do this?

So my Betta Cooper started building a bubble nest on the divider ... right where he and Gary can see each other. Is Cooper building a nest to show off for Gary or is it a "My nest is better than yours!" kind of thing?

Does anyone else have a betta(s) that does this??



here's a vid I managed to get

I think he just decided it was a good area for it? But now you know he is happy!

Right, but one would think he would feel threatened to have his nest so close to Gary.

Perhaps Cooper thinks Gary is a female? But Gary is clearly a male... I wonder if someone else may know what's up?

I'm watching the funniest thing!
Gary decided to start building a nest. They swim back and forth around the divider and then Cooper swims away. Gary works on his nest and then Cooper looks at him and rushes over to his own nest to work on it... its a cute bubble competition...Unfortunately Cooper is loosing in size because Gary's got three small bubbles at a time while Cooper does one big one...

Yeah... I need a life...
