Bubble Nests!!!

I am really excited, my new betta fish Dorian has what looks like the start of a bubble nest in his side of the tank!! There is this patch of weird bubbles over the top of the real plant he liks to swim in.
From what I have read bubble nesting is a good sign? So I am thrilled to see Dorian has made one, or is starting to :D

I was worried that I wasn't doing the right thing, but I feel a lot more confident seeing Dorian making a bubble nest...

My lastest betta Tidus made his first bubble nest. He gaurds it, builds it, swims away, and then starts buiding it. Its so adorable I love when bettas make bubble nests. I'm going to feel like a meany when I have to destory it in the water change tomorrow >.<

Hehehe it is adorable the way they make them.
Dorian swims around a bit, looks at his reflection for a while, swims around, flares up at Flash, and then puts another couple of bubbles in... and repeats that cycle for a while.

I had an air pump in my tank but during the first water change I removed it because it basically served no purpose and I'd heard Betta's preferred calm water anyhow.

After I did that, last week Sam built a bubble nest, a huge one, so I was happy. I read that they're a very good sign, and indicate the Betta is happy with their environment.

I just got finished with his weekly water change and I'm hoping he builds another one!
