The past few days I’ve noticed a bunch of bubbles in the corner of my tank and the continued to grow, I think my little Sushi has been busy making a huge bubble nest!!
First off, here’s my Sush-man (Sushi) I got a semi-good photo of him finally, again, it isn’t the worlds best, but it’s the best one i got of him so far.

I have 4 male Bettas all very happy in separate planted 8-10 Gallons each but non have ever made bubble nests
:( they have literally everything a Betta can want !! Do most make them ? Can I do anything to encourage it ? :) I’d be so happy to see one of my boys make one!!!

Bubble nesting is hit or miss. Some Betta make them and some don't. Some make them for a while and then quit. Some make them and they're gone before the owner really sees them. They are connected to sexual maturity. Nothing to do with environment or care although.....If you haven't, float a piece of Indian Almond Leaf; that will sometimes trigger it.

It all depends on your betta itself, I’ve heard that the humidity helps encourage some, but I have no clue how true that is. But I agree with Russell 100% tho, it is a hit or miss and has to do with the betta itself.
