Question Happy or Healthy Baby Betta

Hi, I was wondering if a bubble nest means the betta is happy and healthy ? I know it means he is ready to mate. But my baby betta is building the biggest nest I've seen it covers the whole surface of his tank and I have to spoon out mustr of the nest to where he can get air.

Does that mean he is happy and healthy?

There's no way to say whether they're really "happy" or not (though I'd like to think so) but usually a betta wont do that unless he is healthy. So I would say yes, you have a happy healthy fish. :)

It means he's becoming an adult. Bubble nests are territory markers for bettas. They also serve as a place for the eggs to hatch and fry to develop during the first few days.

Too add, I don't think it's an indicator of health. Some members on here mention seeing sick betta's in the dirty cups making bubblenests too.

No it doesn't, sorry. They use it to mark territory and for mating. That's a myth that someone in the world made up. :/
