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.

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.

Only male Betta fish make bubble nests! they make these for the females, who will lay her eggs in it!

yes they can have babies, and the male betta has to make the nest for the female. yes they can have babies, and the male betta has to make the nest for the female.

Your betta will only make a bubble nest if there is a female present in the tank typically by placing her in a breeder tank available at most local fish stores. Also I would suggest to have some floating plants, and some sort of plants so that the bubble nest can be anchored.

It is courtship but be careful during the mating the male will kill the female then the male will make a bubble nest. When the babies hatch be shure to separate the babies or they will eat each other hope this helps

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.

At the top of the tank is normally where the male beta keeps his bubble nest

the male betta fish makes the nest.

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

that is how they build their nests for their eggs to hatch

feed it and then give it a female beta fish. if you do this in the wrong order he will eat the female and waste your food.

betta fish mate when the male starts to make a bubble nest.he does this when the temp is raised to about 27-28c,now you need to separate the female into a private chamber where the male can see in the same tank for a few hours.then release her.if all goes well your beta fish will mate

That means it is not happy if you just got a betta fish then it has to know his sorroundings more better he will make a bubble nest sooner or later.

Male Betta fish make bubble nests when they are happy ^^ I have only had male Betta fish and after a day or two of playing with them and feeding them or even just talking to them they make their nests to show you that you made them happy.

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's best to only put male and female betta fish in the same tank/bowl if you are breeding them. If they are not breeding and they still stay in the same area, the male would most likely attack the female, so keep the female away! Also, if you are breeding betta fish, make sure to remove the female betta after she lays her eggs, as the male will care for them and chase the female away.

Betta fish are very territorial, but during mating season they make a bubble nest to mate, when they male and female are the right ones to mate they will start to dance, after that they mate for about 30 minutes-8 hours. Finally when they are done the male will chase the female off and he will guard his nest until all the eggs have hatched.

probably,male certainly make bubble nest,male have long fin and large gills,male dont have egg spot between the fins and bottom tail

Nothing will happen but if you put a female betta fish and a male betta fish their going to figth so make sure to have that thing that separates them male betta fish can figth and if a male betta fish has babies separte them and keep them away from their parents and when they grow up check if their a male or a female if their female put them on the same tank put there might be a lot of females if i was u i will just sale them cuz i think you only have one tank but thats my opinion and if somebody needs a question just tell me my name is Allison Hamilton

if the betta is male, it is a bubble nest, he want to make babys, you should research breeding bettas for more, it also means he is healthy ;)

No, only female fish produce eggs. Male betta fish produce sperm.You may often see a cluster of egg shaped bubbles at the top of a male betta's bowl or aquarium. These are not eggs, but they are a type of nest called a bubble they make nests for the females to lay eggs inNo, the females lay eggs.
