    Quote:It depends on what condition the betta is in. In general most breeders will feed better quality food as well as live foods to get her plump.

    I just noticed lots of bubbles in my betta's tank as well. Covering almost the entire surface. Is that a bubble nest too?

    What your seeing is a bubble nest. It simply means that he is comfortable where he is and has decided that his tank is officially his "territory". Betta's will make these in even fairly bad conditions so it is not necessarily a sign of happiness and health, though it is a definite sign of being settled in and unstressed [​IMG]

    Quote:Female betta's always have a certain number of eggs inside of them though it takes really good healthy food and warm clean water to get them in the breeding mood. Believe it or not the female is actually the easiest part, its getting the males in good condition that takes a little effort. They need all of the above only longer because of all the energy he uses up (He's practically does all the work [​IMG] )
