    Hello everyone! I am happy to report that Petrie is no longer bloated and I decided to upgrade his tank and make some more room on my desk for it. He moved from a 1.5 to a 3.5 gallon (+heater and filter) and is loving life. I am however sad that I had to discard of his HUGE bubble nest when...

    Hello all! I'm a long- time fish owner, off and on, for several decades. Everything from 50 gallon to 5. Multiple bettas over the years as well as community tanks. I've been a member before, but I couldn't figure out which email address I used. I've recently set up my 5 gallon, Spec v again...

    Hello again, Petrie's mom here. The temperatures in AZ are rapidly changing and I'm trying to combat all the natural elements that would bug my betta LOL. He's sitting in a 1.5 gallon tank with real plants and a new addition of a flat heater (mini 15 W) right beside my window for natural light...

    Hello, For the first 6 months I had my betta he was an avid bubble nest builder (photos attached). Even when I'd destroy them from water changes he'd go right back to making new ones. However, for the past month, he has suddenly stopped making them. He made one in the past month, but the next...

    My beautiful, half moon Betta has made a bubble nest. I know this is PROBABLY normal, but should I be worried? I overthink everything and I'm worried that my baby isn't thriving.

    Hey! So today I noticed that my boy has some bubbles on top of his water surface. They aren’t a cluster of bubbles so it doesn’t look like his normal bubble nest, just some random bubbles across the top. They’re not covering the top, just some scattered around. Nothing is different in his tank...

    Hey guys, I had placed a female into a 10 gallon tank with a male in a chimney for 2 days, and the male made a great bubble nest, and I released the female, and the next 36 hours seemed pretty decent, he was doing this mating process and this morning when I went to check on them, the nest has...

    Is there a reason my betta hangs out by his bubble nest? Is he "protecting" it?

    Is this normal or what? I already removed the female a day ago.

    Hey-- I am interested to know how all of you out there feed your male betta while he is tending the eggs, or if you don't feed him at all. Some say if you feed him, he will be used to food and start to eat the eggs, and others say if you don't feed him he will get hungry and start to eat the...

    Hi! I bought two bettas today from my local pet store, one male and one female. When I bought the female, I noticed her stomach was swollen and with more research figured out that she was egg bound and that her reproductive organ was visible though she is not yet showing signs of being ready to...

    So I took my halfmoon betta, Kumo, out of his 6 gallon to do a water change. In his temporary tank (2.5 gallon) that I'm using while I'm cleaning out his gravel and doing the water change, he started to build his very first bubble nest! Now I feel terrible that after I do his water change I will...

    My little guy just started making a bubble nest in an undisturbed corner of the tank, and I'm so proud. Thoughts?

    Hello! I'm a relatively new betta owner, only had mine (male) for a few months. I recently added a new coral hiding place to his tank that he LOVES. I was wondering if this looked like a bubble nest? I heard they make them when they're happy. Sorry if its hard to see, its in an awkward corner of...

    I read that only females get vertical stripes so I'm not sure why my male betta has them, he was sold as a baby male at petco, I've had him for about a week and he was slightly bigger then the other babies so is he actually a female that was just sold as a male or do young males sometimes get...

    I have been having a little issue with my Royal Blue VTCT male, named Bluetail (adopted him from another family.) I want him to breed with my Steel Blue CTCT female named Geneviève. They seem to be compatible since they are showing signs of liking each other. (The male is swimming in an "S" and...

    I am so frustrated. I've been breeding bettas for years, but this one pair... I have them in a 20 gallon tank filled up six inches. The water temperature is kept at 82 degrees F. I've conditioned both of them well. My female has intense vertical lines and my male has a nice bubble nest. She...

    Is this a bubble nest? BTW the yellow in there is his cave and it's reflection. The tank isn't filthy.

    So my tank has gone through a few changes, which includes tank mates (2 Neon (survivors of 10) and 2 Otos), new gravel, real plants (a ton of Cabomba, couple swords, and some moneywart). I haven't seen Poseidon make any bubble nest for about a month. and with all these changes I wasn't sure if...
