My male betta (Inari) doens't seem to acting very different he's just as active as he normally is but i think he is building a bubble nest I have a pic I will appologize for the quality though. It was taken with a very low def camera, like a cheap webcam. I'm wondering if now he wants to reproduce or what I've seen him do this....but I've only had him for a few weeks!! If it is not a bubble nest what is it and why is he doing it?

You can change water just fine. Male bettas do make them (age doesn't really matter from my experience). My Jesse made them quite frequently even up until a couple weeks before he passed. It doesn't necessarily mean they want to breed. They just enjoy doing it I think.

Lilex had started making them not too long ago and Chickadee said it shows signs of contentment. Looks like your guy is happy to be where he is!


YAY!! :)

Thats cool to learn about them being old and still doing the nests! Im sory for your lost though.

My friends bettas after they get older dont make bubble nests...

Thanks. Jesse passed some time ago but I still miss him. He was my very first betta.


Yes, that is my understanding on the bettas and their bubble nests ... Chickadee may have some more insight though. Definitely nothing to worry about though.

Male Bettas will make bubble nests if they are happy and healthy.
Do continue with water changes...it doesn't matter if you wreck the bubblenest when doing so. He'll probably just make a new one.

If he was a bubblenest then he will make one and yes they do that when they are content and happy. Inari must be healthy and happy or at least fine with the world right now so just imagine what you will have when he gets his new big tank?!!

This is a good thing.
