All Male betta fish Splendens blow bubblenests. It's a sign of them feeling comfortable enough to claim the territory(tank). It's a sign of a healthy betta as well.

Now if you go into other species there's much more they would do. You have mouthbrooders who hold the Fry in their mouth protecting them and others with interesting husbandry instincts.

My Bettas have all been sneaky bubble-blowers so far. I'll clean the bowl, and then in the next day or two there is a bubble nest. I never see them do it!

Try purchasing a younger male Betta. The chances that they will blow bubble nests decreases with age:)

Some wild bettas such as betta hendra (red wine betta) formally known as betta SP palangkaraya I had very little success until I had the right cave offered. Then he would build a thick little nest in the cave. Now I have no trouble getting these shy bettas producing offspring
