Bubblenests

I've heard a lot of people who get new bettas and right away they start making bubblenests, is that common?

I've had my little guy for about five days now, and while he is active and eats all the time he hasn't been making any bubblenests at all. I think I've read that some fish are just like that. He's really small too, about an inch and a half, I don't know if that has anything to do with it though, I doubt it.

Mine didn't make a bubblenest for like two weeks after I got him. He's probably still settling into his new home :) He will get bigger. Mine was small too and now he's much bigger and his colors changed and got more vibrant just from feeding him.

He seems really happy, super active, he already knows it's feeding time when I open the top. I'm sure you're right, I just need to hang in there for a few more weeks!

Mine is just over a month old and he hasn't made any yet, he makes random bubbles everywhere though, so I don't know if that counts, XD

We went many weeks without a nest, then after some changes, viola. It wasn't my intention to induce him to do so when I made the changes. See the link.

I noticed mine doing that last night, but then the filter kind of popped them, lol. So perhaps that's why, I don't really know.

Huh, I just did a 50% change last night, so I'll check and see if that made any difference, thanks!
