No bubblenest.

Is it a bad thing if your betta doesn't make a bubblenest? Mine never does. He's healthy, happy, but no bubbles! Is this a bad thing?

He made a couple bubblenests after I rescued him from the horrors of the pet store, but now he doesn't make any at all. He just hides in his plants or sits and watches me all day. He's active and spunky (he jumps out of the water and bites my finger! ), but no bubbles

Well, I'm glad this is normal for some fish, I was worried that maybe something was wrong :/

Hmm, my Betta like yours, made some bubblenests after I bought him from a fish farm. After that he never makes them. I tried adding Indian Almond Leaves(IAL). Then to my surprise, he makes bubblenests for a week! The Indian Almond Leaves actually can coax your Bettas into spawning, so it makes bubblenests.

No wonder my Betta makes a nest soon after I add fresh Oak leaves. It's funny how that works!

As they said: Don't worry. The bubblenest is a territorial/breeding thing. The males (In The wild, and even in some peoples fish tanks) will build bubblenests to take care of eggs, and sometimes they will establish a territory by just putting a few bubbles on the outer edge of their tank, or plants sticking out of the water.
