No, bubbles mean he is content. he is not ready to mate ever. Unless your ready to mate him... like, you have 100s of jars, a big tank... etc.

Mating is *quite* a process and it is not to be undertaken lightly, I'd advise doing a lot of research before you even begin to consider it. He will certainly remain perfectly happy without a female and the bubble nests are a sign of health for the most part, so congrats, and keep doing what you're doing!

do not get him a girl. most of the time they will beat on each other (male beats up female or female beats up male) breeding is a complicated process that requires alot of research and is more than just drop to bettas in the same tank.
