Smile are they waiting for a female?

I've read different things about bubblenests. That it means they are happy..not too sure about that one. lol. That they are preparing for a female and that maybe it's just in their nature to make them. Well, seems my guys all make them. Hard working guys.

He's just starting his....(and he used to be pure white..)

In same tank...divided. His is getting BIG.

All 3 of these guys are constantly hard at work making them.

IMO, you CAN say your betta is happy/healthy if he builds bubbles nests, because it means all his needs are met for being ready to breed. Now, that doesn't mean there aren't exceptions because even some unhealthy bettas will build them, but it seems to me that most bettas' instincts will tell them that its the right conditions for breeding, and mother nature usually only tells them this when they are in good conditions! So, is he just waiting for a female? Probably, but ask yourself if you think he would care about females or breeding if he were starving, freezing, or swimming in his own toxic waste? ;) Just my two cents.
