The can have health problems but all and all they are pretty healthy. It is also hard only to keep once because they are such little beggers.

The one I got now has the entire 5.5 gallon tank all to himself but he only stays in the back corner near the heater (set at 78-79) and keeps blowing bubbles on it. Every few minutes he'll blow a new bubble. Don't know why he's doing this.. Any suggestions??

I used to have a betta and from what I've read they blow a "bubble bed" when they are happy. Then, if they were to meet a female she would lay her eggs in his bed.

the betta bubble nest is for breeding, they'll do it whether there's a female around or not. If he stays by the heater all the time I wonder whether the whole tank is at 78 degrees or not; they supposedly like the hotter temps.
