Unhappy Bubbles at the surface

I've bought everyone at work Betta fish for on their desk. They all talk to them , and really like them. I have had Betta's before. Some have lived for years. These Betta's at work seem to be producing bubbles that stay on the surface of the water, and mine today even had white foam on the top of the bubbles. They seem healthy, and are swimming around. I never had this happen before, and it seems to be almost every Betta at my office. Can anyone fill me in on this?

Yah like tnicholas said, it is called a bubble nest, they blow them when their happy and healthy so your doing something right Im usually opposed to people buying pets for others because its a big responsibility, but in this case it sounds like it worked out well.

I did it for their enjoyment---I do all the maintenance----all they do is enjoy! 95% of them never knew what a Betta Fish was!

No way---it is well worth it---to see them enjoy those fish, and discuss them---it is a riot----------they are all so very concerned when we have a holiday weekend----I just love it!!

Betta dictionary:

Bubbles: "I feel awesome today, I also want to mate (but don't)."

Not being fed on weekends: Bettas need to fast once or twice a week. Since fish are cold blooded they don't require several meals a day.
