my betta wont make bubblenests

Why isn't my male betta blowing bubble nests anymore?,last time he blow bubbles very often,but right after my female betta died (because my little brother killed it -__-) he stopped blowing bubble nests.After that i bought a new female and hes still staying the same way of oh-im-not-going-to-blow-bubble-nest lol... This is the new female (sorry for the bad quality)
<-----The male

He might need time. Remove the girl give her, her own tank for awhile and leave him be. Like you need to let him just do what he has to do. I don't know if fish can grieve but I would let him have time to heal....Why did your brother kill her? I'm sorry but I'm curious and it may help.

i think you should move them both out of the spawning tank and give your male betta some time to get over his mate and wait a little while longer to mate them if one dies while your trying to mate you shouldnt have started trying to breed again so quickly

Make sure he doesn't come near your fish again. Constantly stressing fish like that will kill them.
