BDP Posted June 12, 2006 Report Share Posted June 12, 2006 Hello, I have a male CT betta who spawned about 3 months back, during the spawn he made the most pathetic bubblenest and was constantly knocking eggs from it as he turned around after depositing them in there (but kudos for the effort!). He had the usual 'depression' period after removing him from the tank but just recently he has begun making bubble nests everywhere! I have a banana lilly and he has made three substantial bubblenests under three of the lilly pads plus occasionally makes another against the corner of the tank. I recently added a chocolate gourami (I know they are a fragile little fish but I had never seen one in the shop before and my tank conditions are just about right so you know.. ) and while the bag was floating in the tank he made a nest against it! He chases the gourami around the tank a bit but apart from a small nick out of the gouramis tail, he usually just sidles up and chases him off without attacking. Is he just insane, REALLY keen to breed again or is this typical? also will he get less territorial with the gourami over time? im not exactly worried as he seems healthy but more curious as ive never had a betta do this before! sorry for the long post!
