So... I think my bettas mated?

I have a male and female betta in a tank with a divider. Somehow though, my female betta got onto the other side of the tank... when I got home, there she was, my two bettas were getting along, and my male had built a HUGE bubble nest. I don't know much about betta mating, but is this a sign that they may have? If so, what should I do to take care of my (potential) fry?

Also, as a side note, I noticed that he has been puffing up his beard when she comes near the divider... idk if that means anything, though.

the question here is- does the nest have white specs in it?
Betta fish build bubble nests all the time, its quite a basic behavior for them. Even female bettas build nests! But check, they might have! If so congratulations

Thank goodness, they haven't mated. Not that I wouldn't love to have little betta babies, but I don't have those kinds of resources.

I shall have to buy some moonsand to plug up the gap she's apparently been swimming through.
