How much sleep do bettas need?

I've never really thought about this before, but yesterday when I stayed up late at my desk I noticed Yumenoke(whose tank light is my desk light) turn away from the light and sleep. All of my other bettas-from what I can tell- only sleep or rest when all the lights go out and wake up after the light has come on. So it made me wonder if bettas need a certain amount of sleep like we do to stay healthy. Does anyone know? Or has anyone noticed their bettas sleeping habits?

I remember reading somewhere they need 12 hours of daylight only. More is probably not good. But I hardly need to worry about this as my bettas are not in busy area of the house where family are. I would think of it as keeping it as natural as possible. Let the sun do it's job and keep artificial lights away when it's night time.

That's probably best, and I've strayed covering up Yumenoke's tank if I am working there late.
