Bubble Nests

My betta, Andy, builds nests about every other day. Is this normal? I think he gets mad because when I change his water I also wash away his nest... so maybe he actually WANTS his nest to be a permanent fixture in his bowl!! :rofl

How often should bettas build nests anyway?

Yep, that's normal! I've got an aggressive crowntail who makes his a centimeter thick. I leave a clean piece of styrofoam at the edge of his tank to anchor his nest so that when I do my cleaning invasion, there is still a good base for him to work with. Healthy bettas blow nice sticky little bubbles, but large, lone random ones are indicator of something wrong, like a bacterial infection.
