Bubble nest!!

So I've always noticed that Zakut (my blue/orange VT) builds an insane number of bubble nests a week... I recently added some plants to his tank and he's been getting some face time with Nova (their tanks are close but they can't see each other most of the time because I have it blocked) I remove the divider for a few minutes a day or so just to give them a bit of exercise. I have never personally witnessed the building of a bubble nest, but as I'm sitting here typing, Zakut is building away like a mad fishy xD it's a good half a centimeter tall now and extends for 2.5 inches into the tank xD I just found it cool because he's usually so shy about building them in front of me and makes them only at night when I'm asleep

You should give him the chance of breeding and for your knowledge. If you guys want to see Bettas build nest add IAL in the tank that will get them going

Got back from the store a while ago, and the nest is now covering the short end of my 2.5 lol and I would LOVE to give him a shot at breeding as he is quite the handsome fella, but I just can't afford to breed right now, not nearly enough space xD

I'm just excited that he's letting me watch him build nests now, it's funny, he'll go under it, blow a few bubbles into it, swim away and look at it from a distance, and go back and add more. It's like he's a little artist xD

I would love to breed Carter but do not have the supplies and Carter is too old to breed.

It's very amusing seeing my betta fish make a bubble nest!

He usually is quite fast in making them :)

I've seen Mori working on nests a few times. He only does it when I'm away or asleep because as soon as he knows I'm watching him he's not interested anymore.
