Some males take longer to build nests than others nothing to worry about! You could try adding an indian almond leaves in his water. By the way is the filter making the water near the surface look like its vibrating? If so than the current is probably popping the bubbles when he blows them. If you wouldn't mind telling me, what size tank is he in and is it heated and filtered?

When it comes to water changes they tend to ruin nests so dont worry he will probably build one once he is in his spawning tank.
