it is not always about breeding or when they see a female. i have males that built nest without any betta around them, it means that they are healthy and happy sometimes
ready to breed not all the time.
and also females pitch in helping pick up the eggs, or they try to eat them and males sometimes eats the eggs. betta fry hatch in 2 days though.
