Oh My Bubbles!

My crowntail, Kinu has gone crazy with his bubble nests!

For his first month with me, he didn't build any nests, but then one day I spot a little one in the corner, and thought it was the cutest thing <3 Since then, he had been building little ones after every water change.
But then today I come home to this monstrosity!
His last water change was last night, and he managed to build all this 0.o

Crazy little boy wants himself a girlfriend ;)


Oh, and I know his decor is lacking. He had some anacharis in there too, but they were melting pretty bad so I'm floating them in a fish-less tank and hoping to try to save them. Not sure what else to put in there if they end up dying :/

Oh wow, that's a huge nest! I hope your anacharis are okay :(
Also, just a random question do you have a filter in there?
love your tank too, it's gorgeous.

No, I have been looking for something that'll take up as little room as possible, because his tank is only 2.5g and I don't want to make that space smaller with a bulky filter. I had considered sponge filters, but would prefer an internal filter if I could find something. Until then, I've been doing 1 100% water change a week with 2 50% changes in between, plus he still has a couple of java ferns in there that have been doing well.

Thanks Perseusmom. My other 2 boys could stand to learn from him as well. So far only 1 nest between the two of them, haha.
I'm using an LED strip light I'm not sure about wattage or anything (not sure how that works with LEDs). Right now the anacharis are sitting next to a tank that's using a 15w florescent light in case it was my lighting that did them in.

I see! :D haha my tank has a filter and whenever Sprinkles even tries it always goes away after awhile. I think it might be the filter, not sure. I guess he doesn't blow the best of bubble nests xP
