Talking Some EPIC BETTA LULZ and a question about bubblenests.

Hey again, Betta forum peoples! Tian-Tian's mommy here (and Taco's, too).

So I found this REALLY FUNNY picture of a very rude Betta that discovered his skeleton decoration was a rather nice place to rest his head... Just thought I'd share it with y'all (permission was granted).



Aren't Bettas great?

Now, the REAL question I needed to ask:

Bubblenests. Tian-Tian hasn't made a decent bubblenest in MONTHS. I have tried heating, switching feed, regular water changes... I'm at a loss of what to do! He's fully grown so I know it's not a lack of maturing. Help?

Meanwhile, Taco has taken up interior bubble design and has lined his entire tank in a ring of neat bubbles. These fish weird me out sometimes, but I love 'em. (and ZMOG Taco did a full flare for the first time this morning; his flare is bigger than his whole body! It's cute!! )

But really, help with Tian-Tian would be appreciated. Thanks, guys! And let me know what you thought of the picture ('cause the owner wants to know, lol)!

Well different things stimulate them to build a nest, some things are, water changes, treats like bloodworms or brine shrimp, uncreased temperature, or a girl near them. So if none of those work maybe you could try them all together.

Maybe he knows you want him to build a nest and he feels like picking on you. Try prasing Taco with treats for building his nest and Tian-Tian might get jealous and build a nice big one for you.

Ohh and that is a great pic.

Funny you mention bringing in a girl. I've been meaning to get a female to complete my Betta set but I wanna get a bigger tank and split it, first. (So I'd have two boys and a girl.) That probably won't be for a while.

And praising Taco sounds good in theory, but you have no idea how jealous Tian-Tian already is of Taco. These fish, seriously!! But I suppose I'll give it a shot, at least.

And indeed, it is a great picture.
