Welcome to Fishforum.com.

Your betta created those bubbles as bubblenest. No need to worry about it.:)

On bettatalk.com Faith said that these bubbles mean that they are healthy. I just got a betta a few days ago, and he started spitting these little bubbles out, so I almost panicked until I read that they were a good thing. :P

Hi. I am new to the group. My betta "fred" also has bubles in his fish bowl. What exactly are bubblenests for? Thank you for the help.

hi
the bubbles are because he is ready to spawn. :)
if you add a female then you are advised to
give hiding places for her as he can be agressive,
once the mating has happened,the eggs sink
the male collects them and puts them in the bubble nest.
it is best to then remove the female,and then the male
once the fry are free swimming.
this is just what i have read on the net.
i hope it helps.
welcome by the way hope you enjoy it here.
:)

thanks for the info. I have a beautiful blue male betta. His colors are bright and gorgeous. How long do the bubbles stay around? Will they come back if I change the water? Please let me know.

Thanks again,
Corrina

kay.. my female makes bubblenests and everyone says that its ridiculous but its true, she does it when ss going to lay eggs, and since theres no males she makes her own..

its a timing thing, i clan them out but she just keeps making more until the eggs are in.
