It just means their happy. It's a good thing. :) It depends on the Betta I guess about if they stop or not. You don't need to breed them.

yep, there happy and healthy. they do stop, like around 14 months they lack the motivation, unless you keep them active :P
you don't need to keep cleaning it when ever they make them, they get pretty sad i feel horrible for destroying it >.< it's like when a cat gives you a dead mouse, or bird, or when a bird regurgitates for you :)

As everyone else said, its perfectly normal. When I went into fish keeping with bettas, I though the same thing. I didn't even know what a bubblenest was until my LPS owner told me.

Anyway, this is a good sign that he is satisfied in the condition he is kept in. I've even heard of female bettas blowing bubblenests, though I don't know how much of this is true. Also I don't believe it.

I'm glad to hear that he is as comfortable to build a nest every time you clean his tank. I don't normally hear of this very often.

-Good Luck!

Thank you Betta lover 1507 for saying 14 months they usually stop: I always thought my boys were unhappy. Then again, my boy does have a spine injury that interferes with his swimming. He does start up a little bit though Whenever he sees the ravishing Winnipeg l. :)

14 months old is not correct. It all depends on the fish overall and the conditions he or she was kept in. So I would not advise to quote that. Ive had fish for two years and he still blew bubblenests. IMO, he was kept in good condition and very healthy.

It would be like saying "Old people past 80 will be in a wheelchair or disabled" See what I mean? 14 months is probably when BL1507's betta stopped blowing bubblenests.
