    So, I came home today, fed Chance his din-din (heheh :anim_63: ) and left to go pick up medicine at Walgreens. I came home to find him working on a bubblenest.

    The weird thing is, he's making it around the rim of the tank, so there's a layer of bubbles he's made that completely circles the tank. (I watched him do this to rule out other causes) On top of that, he has a little bubble nest he's made under the flow diffuser I made for his filter.

    Is this normal? I've never seen a Betta make a bubble nest that goes around the tank before. As soon as I can, I will upload pictures.

    Maybe he's planning to fill the whole top with bubbles and he's starting from the edges? :giggle:

    Or maybe he doesn't have a lot of experience with bubble nests so he's just learning.

    Either one, I am pretty sure you have a happy betta.

    I'm all excited!

    He's definately happy! I can tell, he'll swim through my fingers and against my arms when I do tank cleanings/water changes (I like to re-arrange his plants for a bit of new scenery). He ALWAYS stays on the side I'm on, be it at my computer or sitting on my bed, he gets excited when I sing (See my other topic on that), and he does everything he can to get my attention. I think he likes me, lol!

    One of mine have done that, perhaps they just have architect issues. All create their masterpieces of bubble work in different ways. :)

    If it's just a ring of bubbles around the tank it's probably just collected bubbles from the water surface movement. Or, he could have made a nest that is getting broken up by the water movement. :)
