Orange Bubble nest?

I have had bettas for several years now and have never had a problem (except one of them got constipated) but I just got a new betta and his bubble nests are orange. I thought at first it may have been a problem with the water, but I've changed his tank 3 times and each time he makes a nest it has orange bubbles. I've googled TONS of different things trying to find out what's wrong but can't seem to find anything. There is nothing visibly wrong with him, he swims and eats fine. Any ideas as to what might be wrong?

Maybe it is just the lighting...

It's definitely not the lighting. He is in the same room as several other bettas (I have about nine at the moment, not including the babies) and it's bright orange. I've never seen anything like this before

I don't know, the bubbles is just air isn't it? I don't know how the orange color could be from the fish itself.

The male betta coats the bubbles with saliva which is why they don't just pop once they reach the surface. So far no one can explain to me why his bubbles are yellow and orange.
I would post a picture but I'm not sure how :/

Upload the picture to something like photobucket, then post the imag link into the reply and it should post the picture.

That is really, REALLY strange O.o Wow....may it has something to do with his saliva..? Hmm...did you get him from a breeder or a petstore? Perhaps ask what they were feeding him...?
Yeah, I'd definitely like to see a pic....lol, I'm really curious, I've never heard of something like this before.
