So I woke up to...

So I woke up to a lot of bubbles on top of the water in one area. Is that a bubble nest? I've never seen one before and I want to make sure that's what it is!! I've only had this betta since Thursday so does that mean he's happy with his new home??

That's probably a really dumb question! hahaha

good!! i'm glad they are good! haha, and yes, they are kinda gross- i'm going to do a water change tomorrow! i also have to run to petco- I didn't realize the "thermometer" (the stick on one) needed to be on the outside of the tank...i put it on the inside- do you think that makes a difference? it's been pretty accurate and within a 1-2 degree range- except today bc i left the light on all day by mistake bc i was babysitting...the water is about 83ish... that's not too high is it?

I think 82-83 is fine. I don't really know how high the temp can go though.Maybe around 85 or so?

ive read some places as high as 87 is suitable. Ranges from 74-87 are all over the net. From my own experience and an average of what I have seen I would say to try not to go much higher than 85.. of course right around the high 70s or 80ish is perfect... but thats common knowledge now, lol.
