Question Water Changes Ruining Bubble Nest?

I do a 10% water change day and a 50% water change every week. I have a 10 gallon tank with 1 Betta fish and he has been building up he bubble nest but every time i change the water the nest seems to disperse around the tank and I think it ruins it. Is that ok? He just builds it up again but still! I wouldn't want my nest to be ruined every time I got new water in my tank!
Thanks

Yah. Happens in the wild as well.....

If you wish to keep the bubble going then buy some floating plants or betta log and strategically place them around the area your betta likes to build to impede the water current from breaking it down during changes.

Well think of it this way: bubble nests or ammonia burn?
Plus in a ten gallon you only have to do 25-40% changes weekly assuming there is only one fish in the tank like me
