MY BUBBLEZ!


Pike is so funny when making his bubble nest. He looks like he is going to kick my butt in this shot. LOL He only does it at night time. No wonder why he never sleeps and I see him moving about in his tank. XD

Awesome pic, Tree.

Neither of my boys ever flare or build nests. (Well, Gallifrey WILL flare, but not often.) :( I really must be doing something wrong...just doesn't seem very betta-ish for them not to do either thing.

Hahah don't worry, two of my boys wont bubble nest either. though one might not be able to keep the bubble nest to hold from the sponge filter.

My boy Xerxes rarely makes bubble nest, the only time he made and mainlined one (for about 2 weeks) was after I told someone he must not be interested in mating (they were offering to mate their mustard plakat gal with my boy), guess he can read and how to show me otherwise. But to be fair his tank has a canister filter so it gets more flow than some (though I have outflow through a spray bar with holes pointed at the wall its adhered to to reduce flow), so its admittedly not too easy to keep a nest.. even though I've let a lot of floaters grow in there lately. I also notice he start building nests if I up the frozen or live food meals instead of being mostly pellets, but he seems to loose interest/give up on maintaining them. I think the higher protean diet encourages them.

oh interesting thought of the protean diet. I give all of my boy Omega one along with frozen blood worms once a week. they go ballistic when the tongs come out. XD

Same here, I thaw my blood worms and brine shrimp (on once a week rotation for betta) then tongs them into the tank. He recognizes the cup and long planting tweezers (tongs) and just darts back and forth in front of them when they're out on my desk. He also knows when its feeding time (have an alarm on my phone as a reminder.. i wear he's memorized the sound for it) and when I'm sitting here and not feeding him on time/take a while to do it he gets notably grump/darty "PAY ATTENTION AND FEED ME!"

Lmao. :) Cute. Yeah, I bet it the diet probably has some effect. Hmm. I've been trying to vary my bettas diets, but I've only just started giving them daphnia, so.

Mine usually gets pellets, but I also feed (thawed) froze blood worms and brine shrimp, and a rare treat of live black worms (keep them for the dwarf puffers who -unlike betta- are very stubborn about processed foods).
