  1. Is this normal?

    Betta Fish Care
    My betta which I have yet to name has already made a bubble nest. Is this normal? I havent even had him for 24 hours. Also any name suggestions would be awesome! Thank You :notworthy:
  2. holy bubble nest!

    Betta Chat
    I know that Betta making a bubble nest doesn't mean that your betta is happy or necessarily healthy, but I have never seen anything like this before. My betta bastion usually crafts small bubble nest in the corner by his heater, so this is the size I see regularly. My spyro never really made a...

  4. Change in personality?

    Betta Fish Care
    Hey, I was just curious. Is it possible for bettas to change personality as you own them? I rescued a betta in November that was in a cold tank in an art installation at my school. He came to me with pretty nasty fin rot but that was the only major problem with him. Since I've got him he has...
  5. The snapping noise they make?

    Betta Fish Care
    I just adopted my friend's female betta fish. I have my own female betta fish, and I've had her since February. They both make bubbles, of course. But my friend's fish's bubbles are LOUD. Like, it sounds like a snapping noise. And I KNOW it's not the bubbles popping. Is she snapping her jaws...
  6. Confusing behaviour, betta seems happy but not eating?

    Betta Fish Care
    So I noticed my betta, Smokey hasn't really been eating since I put him in his new 5 gallon tank. This to me is unusual since he's shown signs that he's happy and healthy. He gets excited when he sees me and wiggles his body, follows my finger, builds bubble nests and is very active. However...

    Betta Fish Care
    hey guys! i bought my first betta -- a male vt named joss -- less than a week ago and have a few questions... first, i've read mixed things about encouraging bettas to flare. the general consensus (as far as i can tell) is that it's ok for a few minutes a day as long as the betta doesn't get...
  8. Crowntail Dragonscale Bubble Nest Issues

    Betta Fish Care
    I posted another thread as a guest but I got no answer, but I meet to know what's up with my fish so I joined. My betta is a Crowntail Dragonscale male and he's beautiful (in my biased opinion... Yes, that's him in my profile pic). But I have one problem: he doesn't/can't make a bubble nest. I...

    Betta Chat
    Galileo is my boy. He beautiful and fantastic and has a great character. He has a problem though. He has an addiction to his bubble nest. He used to build it in the corner of his tank that is next to Esmeralda's tank. He tended it very carefully and would mope when it got ruined during water...

    Breeding Betta Fish
    Hi! I want to know, what does it take to make two bettas mate with each other? I want Mr. Jingles to have little babies, and I read online that when a betta makes a bubble nest he wants to mate or whatever, and he has made a HUGE one that it almost covered the whole top of the water!! So, I want...
  16. Bubble Nest?

    Betta Chat
    Hi! My betta fish, Mr. Jingles, has like MILLIONS of bubbles in the corner of his bowl. I looked it up and it's called a BUBBLE NEST. Now, his bubbles nests are getting sooo big, that when I put food in he cannot see it because the bubbles are in the way! Is this a problem? Why do bettas make...
