    Hey Fishlore - I just got home after being at Magic Mt. all day and noticed that the top of my 10 gal bettta tank has bubble things floating at the top of the tank. Is it my male betta's bubble nest showing that he wants to breed or is it ADF eggs from my two ADFs?

    That's a classic bubble nest. You can try to breed him if you want but you don't have to. Nothing bad will happen if he doesn't breed. And it's kind of difficult. I've found the nest is usually a sign that they're happy and healthy and feel it's safe to breed. That means you're probably doing a good job.

    You've got to be pretty committed to breed bettas. Or obsessed as in my case. Not only does it take a lot of research, equipment, and time, your beloved pet is likely to get badly injured in the process.

    Yes, look at FB's log on breeding Bettas. There are lots of great photos, too. They are amazing and violent creatures. I just enjoy looking at the nests now and view every pet Betta as the result of intense work and quite a bit of good luck ;)
