Red face Is this a bubble nest?

My filter makes bubbles, but as the day went on, I noticed more and more bubbles gathering at the surface of the water, lol. Is this a bubble nest, or just the filter?

That looks like a bubble nest to me. ^_^ Usually if the bubbles feel slimy it's a bubble nest and plus filter bubbles usually pop.

Agreed, looks like a content bubblenest! Beyond the obvious though, the the bubbles start stacking ontop of each other, then you know without doubt that its a bubble nest.

Oh, awesome! Lol, wow, he started building it within two hours of moving to this new tank. And there're definitely stacks of bubbles on top of each other. I'm very happy. (: Do sick bettas/sad bettas make bubble nests, or only content ones?

I was really worried at first, lmao - I thought the filter was freaking out. See how the bubbles coming out of the filter are really big? And I figured there was no way he could make bubbles that big for his bubble nest. :P

I feel bad though, because tomorrow I'm gonna clean the water and will probably destroy his nest. How often do they make 'em?

I've had a few sick bettas make bubblenests.

They make them... whenever they want. XD I did a water change on my boy's tank yesterday and had to destroy his bubblenest and within five minutes of being in new water he started building one again.

LOL That's something that always happens...I just did it today. LOL But after a while you get used to it and he'll build another one. It keeps him busy so don't worry! :)

Woah, Betta Slave, is that your betta in your avatar? He looks so cool, I've never seen one like him! (if he IS a betta :P)

And aww, I guess that means bubble nests don't necessarily mean that your betta is happy. ): And at least that means I can look forward to lotsa bubble nests in the future, even if I have to destroy his to change his water lol
