where do your fish sleep?

I went to put my betta log back into the tank after cleaning it and letting it air dry tonight and saw little neptune was sleeping on a plant leaf. it was so cute lol how do they keep their balance? I was able to enter and exit without waking him.

Gyarados is such a weirdo, he prefers to sleep on the top of his filter. It's not uncommon to see him curled up there after I shut his lights off. He also wedges himself between the filter and the glass and sleeps on the top of the suction cup. I'm still trying to figure out why, but he's turning out to be one quirky little guy.

Jeffery sleeps on a loosely banded bundle of cambomba clippings that are floating in his jar. We call it his hammock.

I have a set of pipes in my males tank and he sleeps in there with his head sticking out (like a dog house).

I checked on my girls the other night and I thought they were dead...I had 5 of them sleeping in a floating plant. I turned the light on to check they were ok lol, one wiggled, one stared and the others weren't very happy looking haha.

Last night Lucky floated in the water for 15-20 minutes. So, I guess under his betta Hammock?

No name just sleeps wherever...when he was only sharing the tank with Othello, he seemed to go through his decor (it's some type of ruins...I think of Buddah) and sleep there, but now that the tank is split 3 ways, he seems to have lost interest in it.

Gemma sleeps behind a log and silk plant that I put for her at the back of the tank. It freaks me out sometimes because she's completely hidden form view!

Othello used to sleep in his pagoda, but now that I've added floating plants and a lily pad, he likes to sleep among those instead.


Puck (Yellow koi HM king) / Scar (White HM) / Salt 'n Pepper (Silver HMPK) / 'That fish' (Copper butterfly HM) / No name (White DT) / No name 2 (Turquoise/white marble HM) / No name 3 (Lilac HM)




Bo Peep (Cambodian VT) / Goldilocks (Yellow VT) / Joie de Vivre (Multicolour VT) / Lil' Peep (Blue VT) / No name (Dalmatian VT) / No name 2

Longjohn sleeps on the bottom, usually in his driftwood "cave". Sometimes I see him in the plants, though.
