I am a newbie Betta owner. I have two red Bettas, kept in separate 1 1/2 gallon bowls that sit right next to each other. (And yes, I am considering getting a divided aquarium set for the long term.)
Anyway, from reading, it is my understanding that when the male Betta is building a bubble nest it means they are happy and well adjusted. Can anyone tell me why the bubbles look so different between the two fish?
Fish #1 - Fire Boy - builds a fairly good sized bubble nest consisting of teeny tiny little bubbles.
Fish #2- Mr. Fishey - Has not yet built a "nest", but there are a combination of the teeny tiny little bubbles all around the water's edge, plus a goodly amount of much larger bubbles (almost the size of a small pencil eraser) interspersed both along the edges of the water and across the top of the water surface.
Anyone know what this means?
