Question uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuhhhhhhhh

so my beta made his first bubbelnest yesterday and i was so happy then i look at it today and it is huge it takes up like a third of his 5 gallon tank and all he does is hover around it he wont go anywhere else is this normal?
also i am wondering if i can still do a waterchange?

yeah, you can still do a water change, he'll rebuild it. I guess he's just obsessed with his bubble nest, are there any female bettas within viewing distance of his tank?

He must be a protective fishy over his bubblenest!

It's alright to clean it, he won't mind making another one to obsess over.

It's fine. Building another one will keep him busy.

One of my boys builds his nest constantly, its really impressive.. just sad to have to keep destroying it every time I clean it, but he doesn't seem to mind! He just builds another one..I guess some of them are more bubble nest oriented than others, no big deal! :)

:) Sounds great that yours is so industrious with his nests. I cleaned mine my tank, and my male hasn't built another one.
