He is building a bubble nest which means he wants to breed.

He will be fine without a mate.

What temp do you have it at? I always keep my betta at 25 degrees C, but I put it up to 28 degrees a while back and he made a bubble nest. The higher temperatures seem to make them horny, LOL.

That could be it then.

Bettas tend only to breed at a young age. If you bought yours from a pet store the chances are high that he's too old for breeding so I wouldn't try it. Of course it's up to you.

yea, it's just practice...guys reherse pick up lines, bettas practice making bubblenests. same basic thing. as a side note breeding them can be a bit complicated so if you dont have the time or room then just leave him lonely.

My guy has been making bubble nests for the past few monthes too. He's actually getting good at it and he HAS gotton better at it the past few monthes!! lol this week its a very nice little thick nest, when he started it was a lot more scattered. Since hes doing this, If I put him in a 20 gallon tank with a female, how do you think he would re-act? Hes in a BIG bowl now... i dont know what this bowl was intended for but its about a foot and a half tall, and 2 feet wide, no filter. The 20 gallon has a filter but doesnt produce a big current.
