Well, a bubble nest is a good thing, but not pooping is not. Does he look bloated, and do you know for sure that he has not pooped. If so, I would try feeding him a tiny bit of frozen daphnia, or if you can't find that, a small piece of a pea. Just take the skin off and cut it into tiny pieces, and offer him a bit on the end of a toothpick. If it doesn't work the first day, try again the next. Good luck.

Could you give us the information this link asks for? http://www.fishforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=882

Also, what color is this bubble? Any chance you could get a photo?

Absolutely no feeding him unless it's some thawed daphnia or pea (try to find the daphnia in the freezer at PetSmart).

Try putting like a 1/4 teaspoon of epsoms salt in there.

Try putting the pea on a tooth pick and present it to him that way.... Did he stop eating when you were feeding him pellets?

Lol uh no, first of all, are we clear that I'm telling you to put epsoms salt in?

Don't FORCE the pea in his mouth, just offer it to him. But he has stopped eating... I don't really know what to suggest if hes not willing to eat. Other then maybe putting some garlic in there to increase his appetite.
