IMHO, a betta isn't necessarily "happy" if he's constructed a nest. It simply means he has claimed the area as his territory. In the wild, males make nests to signify that they have chosen the location to nest and try to attract females to spawn. I've seen bettas in cups at the petstore with bubblenests. I doubt they are really happy, but being territorial fish they have claimed the cup as their space.

I sure have, no exaggeration. I saw a blue VT male once who had a nest 1/4 inch thick and halfway across the cup's surface. Some bettas just have a desire to make bubble after bubble after bubble.

I've only seen a few at the pet store with bubblenests. It's rare, but it does happen.

It's a common misconception that bettas like to live in tiny areas of stagnent water. That's why majority of them are laying on their sides, lethargic. Poor things sit there in their own poo.

Cool

Bubble nests are just what they do. They are born to do it. Some will make more than others....

The primary command from the great eagle is to create life. Bubblenesting is just a part of that for Bettas.
