my beta and his bubble nest

just a question in general about my beta. He seems to have built a really good bubble nest at the top of his tank. and he guards it day and night. Is this normal?

do you have a female? the males spit the eggs up into the nest and then take care of them. my parents used to breed them.

MWW, yep, like others mentioned, you have a happy and healthy fish...Males usually build these nests when they are waiting for the females to pop in, so they prepare in advance...LOL...so that is a sure sign that he is happy and healthy.
