Smile Bubble

So, I'm sitting on the couch watching my fish bob around in one spot of the tank. I'm thinking ' what the heck is he doing?' Well, he's blowing a bubble nest! Have you ever watched your Betta blow his nest? Its kinda cool watching them do that. Exciting! Its still small, don't know how big he'll make it but I will try to get a pic when he's done.
How long do they last? Do they destroy them or will it pop?

Ever seen them "yawn"?

Yawning happens before bubblenest constiruction, their gils flare out and their mouth opens real wide.

I have one in the spawning tank building a nest...hopefully there will be eggs by tonight :)

That would be neat to see too. I didn't even notice he started making it. Now he's just swimming around.

Mine yawn alot lol. At first it freaked me out. But now I think it's cute.
Yeah I watched Blue make a bubblenest. And it was really quite in the room, so I could actually hear him making it, lol.

Jaden made a bubblenest while I was on vacation. I had to dump it when I got home because all the tanks needed clean water.

At least he made you one! Mine made one when I first got him but he hasn't really made one since, but I'm pretty sure the filter is makeing the surface of the water move so much, so I put a piece of styrophome in the tank, and the next day it had a bunch of bubbles on it.

The funny thing is , he hasn't blown one for several months, then when he gets in the mood to blow one, I'm not there! lol
