Thai moved his bubble nest

I got a female betta recently and she sits in her new home on my dresser, so she and Thai can see eachother if they want. I've noticed them watching eachother every now and then and Thai moved his bubble nest to the front of his tank in full view of everything. He's never done that before, it was always on the side of the tanjk towards the back.
Is he doing this becase he can see Autumn?
Don't worry, i'm not planning on breeding them, I don't want to.
Or is it more of coincidence?
I just thought it was funny and was curious about it. :)

How is color important? Not meaning to sound rude :P

Yes he did it because he saw a female. All well taken care of males do it, now that you have a female you might wanna research breeding LOL.........I said I'd never breed bettas, right after I got my first female, ya well we know what happened next :P

Sorry to disagree, but not all males do it, regardless of care. One of my males almost NEVER blows a bubblenest, female or no. He's just not a nest builder. He's only built a nest once or twice, when he's been next to his brother o.o;

And it sounds like you have a little flirt :P Congrats on the girlie, they're tons of fun ^_^

lol, okay. :)
Thanks for the comments!
Her color stripes are horizontal, I don't think she is interested in breeding, she just seems curious. Thai I guess was!
Haha, maybe he was just happy to see his brother, or protecting territory?
Thanks!

Well i was asking because i was wondering is she was a dark colored female and she would have breeding bars. then i was going to say he did it because of her and he wants to spawn. So yea!=)

... I'm pretty sure horizontal lines mean stress stress stripes and vertical means breeding strips.
