Unhappy Bubbles keep popping?

So i just bought a betta today and hes been fine in the tank, he keeps going up for air im guessing and then blows bubbles but when 2-3 bubbles come out they pop seconds later.

I have put a cling wrap around the top of the tank, while the air filter is going. The water current is pretty minimal im not sure if that is responsible? What else is there to do?

Or is he even building a nest yet?

Need some advice please, thanks in advance.

It could be that your filter Flow is too strong, I also heard bubbles pop with high PH levels it could also be that they are just air bubbles.

When my bettas go up for air, they make a bubble, but one that isn't intended for a bubble nest. It just so happens that they form a little bubble every time they get air.

They only stay when the betta makes bubble after bubble after bubble! Then they cluster together and won't pop =P

I think my betta fish made a nest, theres pretty many bubbles in a cluster, but he is alone in a tank with no females, is that normal?

Yup, thats normal. Bettas dont always blow a bubblenest because theres a female in sight, they also blow them when their happy. So I guess your doing your job well as an owner

Thats good, but looking at pictures of the bubblenests on the internet, im no longer sure if it is a nest, his doesnt seem as big and its not doublelayered.
