bubblenests mean that they want to breed. They are often a sign that the fish is happy too. Cossie, if you want to get into bettas, I would advise getting betta imbellis. Imbellis and black imbellis are some of the coolest species of betta. If you want to get him to flare, just get a big mirror and put it up against the tank. That or you could get a female and put her in a jar and float her in the tank.

I would only keep a male and female together if the tank was over 20 gallons and it was heavily planted and if the male was very peaceful towards females. It might work if they were raised together, but I doubt it. If you have any questions about bettas, my website has most of the information you need.
