Not all bettas will do, it's not the end-all be-all of happiness. If the water is warm enough and they have hide outs and something to do then that's great! My boys don't make nests all the time either. It's nothing to worry about really.

I agree. Nothing much to worry about. I have one boy who has never actually made a full-fledged bubble nest (yes I know he is in fact a male as his fins are as long as he is). If there is any surface movement, that will often discourage them from making nests.

Mine only has once, in 6 months, and I found it was during a time period when his water parameters were like perfect and clean and well maintained, he was receiving plenty of light, regular food (Like same times every day), and A LOT of attention. Like way more than you should probably ever give any pet :P My roommate and I just talked to him, played with him, and had people over who would interact with him, and finally he built a bubble nest. It seems they need a ton of stimulation, with people, noise (in moderation!), their environment, and even changing visual stimulation around the outsides of their tanks. Obviously, most of that should be the case all the time, but sometimes it takes a little extra effort. :)
