Home for my Betta's
I have a beautiful long finned Blue Betta ( Siamese fighting fish ) male and 2 brilliantly coloured female Betta's in a community tank and they have been happy for more than 12 months now.
I would say my 84 Gallon tank has a steady current due to the filters but the Betta's can swim anywhere within the tank quite freely .
I would like to ask about a nest sight ,
1. can you get them specifically for Betta's
2. are they worth the trouble
3. will it enhance the fishes life or create problems
4. If the answer is yes , should I get more Females ( Lucky fellow )
I have a lot less flow at one end of my tank due to the plant life and the filter pump directions , but it still appears to be to strong for a bubble nest.
Advice please83 Gallon community tank with -
10 Glowlight 10 Rummy nose
8 Corys - 5 Bronze and 3 Spotted
3 Clown Loaches
3 Siamese fighters

I cut the bottom off a clean styrofoam noodle cup, so that it was just a ring. I floated that in a corner of my aquarium and it gives a nice ring of still water for them to nestbuild in.

I made one that was quite fancy for my gouramis that i just threw out yesterday. I took styrofoam and made a 3x3 square (measuring from inside of styrofoam). It had open top and open bottom. Then to the bottom of each strip of styrofoam i siliconed a clear plastic piece vertically to make it more private and prevent water flow from disturbing nest.
