What should i do with this bubble nest?!

Just bought a male betta on tuesday and when i got home tonight i found a decent sized bubble nest [:
As happy as i am my little man obviously likes his new home, he is my first betta, so what should i do with the bubble nest?
Keep it there until i clean the tank? Or clean it out now?
I'm not really sure how the nest thing works haha

Just continue with the normal water change/cleaning routine. It's perfectly okay to destroy a bubble nest in the process. We all do. The most important thing is maintaining the tank's cleanliness and water conditions. They rebuild the nests. My little dudes see it as a challenge to build bigger and better nests.

+1 megaredize. My CT loves them and seemed kind of annoyed that I destroyed his bubble kingdom during yesterday's water change... but he's actively rebuilding so I would say leave it alone until cleaning time (no choice then).

When both of my betta's make bubble nests I leave them for a day or two then I remove then and clean the tank water. It's no big deal to remove them. Male betta's will just make new ones. My betta Junior used to get mad when I removed his bubble nest. My other betta BlueJay could care less.
