No, the male betta makes the bubble nest the female gives the eggs.

They do not make bubble nests but are capable of making bubbles as are all Anabantids.

Female Betta fish do not make bubble nests.

A female Betta can only lay her eggs when she is cuddled/embraced under a bubble nest by the male Betta. She can not lay eggs by herself.

No. The male betta makes the bubble nest, the female lays the eggs, the male fertilizes the eggs and then takes the eggs and places them into the bubbles of the nest. Most often he will then turn and attack the female i still present. The male will then tend to the eggs until hatched making sure to replace any eggs that fall out of their bubbles.

Because he can, and he wants to be ready in case an amenable female does come swimming by.

You can only tell if the Betta male makes a bubble nest at the top of the tank. That means that the betta female is going tohave their eggs.

The male Betta does this because he can. He doesn't know if or when a female will come by, so to be on the safe side he keeps himself ready to impress a female if she does turn up.

If you would like to know what gender your betta is, look for the egg spot. (for females) It should be a small white cloud between the head and body. If your betta has one, it's a female. If your betta doesn't have one, it's a male.

As soon as the male has put all the eggs in the bubble nest.

Yes! Betta fish males can make bubble nests whether or not a female betta is present! Male bettas make nests when their home are in proper conditions and they are ready to breed.

Actually, with bettas it's the male that cared for the bubble nest rather than the female. You should leave the male with the nest and separate the female.

male bettas may start making a bubble nest at any time, however they are much more likely to do so if they are in a tank with or very close to a female betta. It also depends on the individual fish. some bettas won't start making a bubble nest until after the female has laid eggs, others will build and maintain a bubble nest weeks before the female lays eggs. Some male bettas will build a bubble nest along the edge of a bowl, but they tend to do more if they have a plant or something else for the nest to stick to.

I can assure you the Betta does not think of you as a mate. They are not stupid and do know a female of their own species. Your Betta has simply reached sexual maturity and is building his display home in the hope that if a lady Betta comes along he can convince her to make fertile eggs with him under it.

it looks like they have a big bubble in their side

Place a female in close proximity where he can see her.

The male will make a bubble nest when the female is about to lay her eggs.

The male Betta splendens always builds a bubble nest and entices the female under it in order to get her to spawn. If the nest is not to her liking she will not spawn with him. So I guess the answer is no. There must be a bubble nest for them to spawn under and for the male to tend the eggs in.

male betta typically have longer flowing fins and are bigger

Betta fish do not get pregnant Once a female releases her eggs the male fertilises them and places them in a bubble nest that he has made prior to mating

It is a male and it is trying to attract a female to mate with. The Bubbles is a bubble nest.

he is unaware that you just let a another fish in and wants to attack her for his territory,but if he starts making a bubble nest that means he is ready to spawn(mate) so put her in

He certainly is not smart enough to be able to tell your sex. What he is doing is practicing and getting ready in case a female Betta comes along. It is just a sign that he is in good condition and ready to breed.
