I think my female betta blew a tiny bubble nest

I have a betta sorority and it looks like one of them made a little bubble nest near a ludwigia leaf that's touching the surface of the water. It's really cute! How often do females do it? I've heard they do but is it rare? of course it's not for breeding but territory marking, right?

I believe it is just a territory marking behavior. All three of my girls do it :)

That's cute that they all do it.

Well, the one in the picture got wrecked last night during feeding time, but when I got up this morning, there was a new, slightly bigger one in its place. I wonder which one is doing it. They all seem to hang out together in that area of the tank so I wonder who actually claimed it as her territory.

It's funny because my two males haven't built bubble nests in almost a year.
