Question Scattered Bubble Nest?

My male is making his bubble nest everywhere it seems, rather than one spot. I had a styrofoam cup in there cut half way but I took it out because he didn't seem to care for it. Looks like he wants to make the whole surface of the 5 gallon tank a bubble nest! I thought it usually starts in one spot and gets bigger. Is this normal, and will it work? Oh yea, my female is blowing bubbles n her jar too!

Give him a little while to finish that. :) I'd put the cup back in though, he might use it. It's good because if they do make it under the cup, then the humidity keeps the bubbles nice and sticky.

Can't say for sure. He'll make it when he's ready.

Defiantly not just air bubbles. He may just not want to breed. He's a plakat right? Looks almost like a female.

Yea hes a plakat, they fight better. Shes more of a longer finned female too, kinda opposite of what they usually are. I conditioned them for about 5 days, and I still continue too feed them both. I read somewhere that you shouldn't feed the male, but read somewhere else that you should, so i feed him. So many websites contradict the other, what do you think? I through in a styrafoam piece from the top of an egg carton, since I through my styrafoam cup away. I'm also tempted to throw her in with him, seeing as shes making a better nest than him!

Oh yea, I'm feeding bloodworms and normal betta pellets, its all I got!
