can female betas make bubblenests?

My question is can female betas make bubblenests? I'm asking becuase I got home from work today and found a bubble nest in my females tank and my male is working on another bubblenest.

Yes. My best friend has 6 females in a 10 gallon and no males in the house.. and every once in a while we'll find bubble nests, and caught 2 different females doing it. (No, they're not skimpy males, they're females.) Don't see it very often, though.. Maybe 5 times in the last 2 years.

ok thanks mollyjean for letting me know. I didn't know that they could or even did make bubblenest I really thought that it was just the male who did. but thanks for clearing that up for me and letting me know that they do and are able to make them. Oh would that be in indicator that their ready to mate or something? I'm not looking to mate mine but just have a curious mind thats all.

A bubblenest doesnt always indicate that the betta is ready to mate, it often means that the betta is simply just happy in their environment =)

Do you mean that if they make bubblenests, that they are showing indication that their environment is conducive to breeding conditions according to the male or female making them? I wonder why a male or female will if they don't see the opposite sex. Of course it could be just instinct to make one if conditions seem right to them in case a Betta of the other sex just happens along I suppose.
