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.

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

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

Yes, a bubble wall can overpower some fish.

Yes female Angle can lay their eggs without a male. But the eggs will not be fertile.

they can. but it is VERY rare. usually you would see a bubble nest.

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

All female creatures develop eggs with or without a male. The male is only needed to do the fertilizing. So the answer is no.

No. An egg, which is produced by a female, must be inseminated by sperm, which is produced by the male.

He is practising nest building just in case a female comes by. It is a sign that your Betta is now mature enough to breed. It can also mean your fish is very happy.(I don't have another betta but mine blew a bubble nest)

It's a mating habit. Males make bubble nests to shelter eggs. If there is no female present, it indicates that he's ready for one.

Yes, some fish even have standards. In Bettas, Males are deemed attractive by how well built their bubble nest is. Yet in live bearer society, males chase females either until the female wants to mate, or until the female gets tired, than mate with them.

the male would be skweesing out the eggs of the female and when the egg get sqused out they would flout up to the top of the tank on the bubble nest that the male made when it was ready to breed

I would guess that either he is not in breeding condition or aquarium (water parameters) conditions are not up to standard for the fish to be able to commence breeding..
