trouble shooting: Male's bubbles popping in spawning tank

Is this normal for the first day for him to blow bubbles that don't quite stay? He's in there all by himself, he tries to make bubbles but they fail. He could make bubbles fine in his normal tank...

any suggestions?

Do you have a filter in the spawning tank?

I have a tiny box filter, but I turned it off so the water would be nice and still for him.

Add a split length ways Styrofoam cup and some floating plants if you can, It will all help greatly in his bubbles lasting longer,
The bubbles don't have to last a great length of time anyways,
Once he gets the eggs he will make extra bubble as needed,

Do you have a lid on the tank? The humidity will also keep the bubbles from disintegrating.
