Daryl's firstbubblenest but..

Hello everyone! :) I am proud to tell you and show you that my little boy Daryl made his first ever bubble nest! He is flaring a lot because the side of his tank is a little darker. He seems to be very active and the water is nice and warm. My only concern is that he seems to be swimming in short bursts. Is he just happy? Or is he stressed out from over flaring and thinking there is another male in there? Thanks for the help guys!

How long have you had him now?

There could be different things going on. You may just have an aggressive fish - nothing wrong with this, some of them just are. If he's still relatively new, he may just be getting used to his environment still. Otherwise, possibly the lighting is bothering him if he keeps seeing his reflection in the glass - try turning the light in the tank off if you don't have good lighting in the area around him.

There might not be anything wrong at all - he could just be aggressive! Some fish are!
