Help Bubbles!
I finally got all the rocks and plants in the tank and set it up today. If you read my post from yesterday I got a betta yesterday for my birthday. Now I got my betta (TYE) in the tank and there are all kinds of bubbles. What do I do? Will it hurt Tye? There is a little hole in the top of the tank lid where you feed the fish and the bubbles are coming out of there to. You would love him, he has so much personality. I am already so attached to him. :) What should I do any ideas?

well lets see are the bubbles on the surface of the water? if so its a natural spawning method that betta use, they blow bubbles in a collection thats called a bubble nest and then when a female comes around and they mate he will take the eggs and spit them up on top of the bubble nest, if this infact is a bubble nest its totally common and is a sign of a happy betta

how big are the bubles? are they on the tank sides or surface of the water?
if they are on the water surface, it sounds like tye has made a bubble nest. congradulations. yahoo
bettas blow bubblenests when they are happy and healthy.
