Betta Behavior?

I have never had a Betta do what Bubbles does. He is happier than can be and he has a rather unique personality. He sees me even walk into the same room he follows me like crazy... so if i sit down he will stay in one spot and watch me for I would swear about 3 minutes, swim around and repeat. Odd thing is when I'm around is the only time he builds his bubble nest.

My question is about one odd behavior. I have the glass rocks covering the bottom of his tank and they are a light tan/brown color. He goes head first down to them and acts like he is mating with it (hugging) then swims up and blows a bubble.

I've had plenty of Betta's before but I've never had them do that. I'm not to worried I just think it is kind of on the odd side.

(He is in a 5 gallon tank atm all on his own and PH and other such levels are perfect, including temp.)

Hmmm maybe he thinks it's a female betta?

That's what I was thinking but I just thought it was odd.

I would love to get him a female but atm I have no where or no one to give the babies to. The fish store around here takes great care of their bettas but I haven't asked them if if they would take them.

Yeah, I've never heard of that before. You could always get a divider and split the 5 gallon and put a male on the other side. I tried putting a female with a male and it didn't work out, so now I have the girls in a divided tank together and they get along so well.

It's been tempting to do that to make him happy. I use to breed Bettas about 6 years ago when I had the time and the homes to give the little ones too.

LOL
He must have something up with his eyes if he really thinks so...
o3o
Maybe he just jumped against the glass a few too many times?
