Bubble Nest

Heyy,

I would just like to know what happens if a betta starts his bubble nest. Do i just leave it? Is he gonna remove it after? Should I do anything different? (Not that my betta looks like he's going to start his bubble nest anytime soon. Just for general knowledge)

Thanks

A bubble nest means that he is kind of declaring he area as his territory and saying he is ready to breed. The nest will only go away if it is forced of not tended to properly by the Betta. Most bubble nesting occurs when the barometric pressure changes as this is an indication of rain. In the wild rain brings floods, which in turn brings female bettas into there territory, or occurs when there is a visible male/female. In the case of another male. He is declaring and protecting his territory, in the case of a female he is showing that he is in breeding condition.

I just treat my tanks like normal. The nests do get mostly washed away during weekly water changes. But my guys just rebuild them again. They see it as a challenge I think, cause the nests keep getting bigger. And I do notice larger ones more frequently as the weather turns to rain.
