my one male built a bubble nest without the female but he didnt put alot of effort to it.my other male didnt even build one until he saw the female and yea they are side by side so they can only see each other.

I would seperate them and just keep conditioning them because the males need to save their energy and blowing a bubble nest and maintaining it will reaquire energy that could be used in the spawning period.

Well while you keep conditioning the male and female together the male will continue to flare and build a bubble nest but also waste energy so then the energy that he built up when you condition them will not last long during the spawning process thus he may eat the fry, but congrats with the new tank remember to cycle the tank before you add anything

He will still build the nest bigger and more full if a female is present and the extra movement and flaring at the female wastes energy aswell. But its up to you to condition them together. So what do you plan to do with that tank use it for breeding bettas for an actually aquarium?

If at all possible try and get a butterfly flatfish pleco, they look like the hillstream loach and they are very good cleaners and plus they look cool too however they are pretty expensive, i bought a few and it cost me $24 ea and the good thing is they stay nice and small cause you dont want to over populate the tank
