Question blowing bubbles

Hi, I have a 10 gal with 1 very small goldfish, I believe he was a feeder that somehow survived. I've had him for about a year. Well he is now in the upper corner of the tank blowing bubbles. Like there is a whole row of them, then he goes to the bottom and picks around then back up to the corner and more bubbles. I noticed it doing this once before but never paid it much attention. Is it anything to this!!

Fighttest is right. Goldfish have strange behavioral patterns sometimes. Is he eating well? My goldfish actually make bubbles from time to time.

He is eating well, not acting sick in any way. It almost looks like he is playing with the bubbles. I was just really curious and wanted to make sure everything was ok.

Thanks much

Hehe. Really playful behaviour. Sometimes they can be weird.

I once had a goldfish which kept on staring a particular decoration. Whenever he passed by this decor, he would swim around it and look at it for quite some time. It stopped when I did a rearrangement and moved that said object. Btw, it was just a small ceramic pot.
