Dwarf Gourami Bubble Nest!!!
OK this may be an inappropriate place to broadcast my utter joy right now... and some of you might say "So what?", but I am happy to say my little Galileo has blown several bubble nests before and after his water change, and I can't contain my excitement any longer! My question is, how is this nest actually formed? Does it have anything to do with mucous?? Does he inhale oxygen and then blow it toward the surface like a human would do with a bubble? Also, if I were to introduce a female into this scenario [I won't, the tank is only 5 gallons and is already inhabited by 2 african dwarf frogs too], would he see it as breeding time? I'm thinking of possibly looking into a species tank because I love this little guy so much...
