You could take a picture, upload it to www.tinypic.com and then link us to the image that way. :p I find photobucket slow.

Here are the links to those pictures. I got him from a petstore out of pity. lol whenever I see them in there in those tiny little bowls I heart breaks. He was too pretty to just let him sit there and rot! He'll never be a breeder because he's too old but I couldn't leave him there! lol
These pictures don't do the colour justice, it is much more vivid in real life. (I've also changed the water about 6 times so It's not near as orange as it was.

It doesn't look like the bubbles themselves are orange, but there's some gunky stuff in there that might be causing the color. What are you feeding him?

Ahh, I see now....yeah, I agree with MB, looks like there's a bit of gunk in there. He may have some sort of problem with whatever organ is used to produce the saliva that helps hold bubblenests together....? I'm not sure....thats really odd...

Or he could be throwing up? That was my first thought.

I agree it looks like dust or power from somewhere.

He looks a pretty boy :)

the stuff that looks like gunk are popped bubbles, when he first makes them you can tell that the bubbles are yellow. I just feed him regular betta food from the petstore. It's the same stuff I feed the rest of my bettas, although I was thinking of feeding him some blood worms. He's really pretty :)

Looks like my Winston. Dals are the best. :)

Really odd... You could try a different brand with him and see if that changes anything?

I'll probably do that. It's so odd though because no websites or anything explain anything like this lol. Every time he makes one the bubbles are yellow and orange. so strange. lol Thanks for the help everyone :)
