My Betta won't follow my finger or anything?

Hey everyone, I got my Betta about a month ago, he's living in a 1L Tank, with a filter, nothing else, he's got a couple of plastic plants too, I want to get him more but I just can't afford it.

I honestly don't think he's happy :(
He made a bubble nest (I think?)
See the picture.
But if I try and play games with him or try and move my finger around and get him to follow it he just moves back and swims away, I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

Perhaps he doesn't associate your finger with anything. Where are your fingers when you feed him?

Many fish will move away from your fingers.
Only those that associate your fingers with food will actually follow your finger.

Thanks everyone! And does anyone know if this is a Bubble Nest? I'm not sure if it is.

no it's just the tank's bubbles, it happens when the tank is new or you performed a water change. Don't worry they will blow it eventually :3

OH!!!! Now I see what the picture is!!!
I was thinking it was put up in error. hehe

Ya those are just wittle air bubbles that come with new tanks or decor. It'll go away shortly/may soon get replaced with an actual bubble nest.
Here is a photo of one of the many bubble nests Spike has made. This was his 1st nest and I had woken up to it. Amazing how they mostly appear over night.

You should get him a heater - they don't cost very much for such a small container as what you have him in and it's really important to his well being to be warm.
