Bubble nest question

NofishB4

So we have 2 bubble nests in 2 very different tanks. The first is in our 10G with a male betta (only company is an amano shrimp and a baby mystery snail). It's huge. But Sonic is acting completely normal...eats well, investigates his territory.

The 2nd is in our 38G community tank. This one belongs to our male honey gourami. He is very hard at work on it to the point that he's not overly interested in food or much else. Including his lady friends. Which is probably best as their attitude towards him can be described as they have a 'headache'. Is it normal for gourami to be so focused on their nests? He's not overly protective of it as our betta, guppies and balloon molly come over and take a look every now and again and he pays them no mind.

Hello! The betta behavior is normal. They make them when they're happy, and often when they want to show off to you since bettas bond with their owners. Not sure about the gourami, as I've never kept them.

Totally normal for both fish. Bettas and Gouramis are closely related (and should NEVER be kept together) and both will make and tend to bubble nests when the mood strikes them.
