i have just come to the conclusion that my Delta male likes to sleep lieing down on his side...i thought he was dead so i swished the water a little, and he jumped right up and swam around...looking at me like i was insane...when i woke up this morning, he was on his side again... until i stood up. Then the fluttered to the top of his tank.
Mine sleeps on his belly...
(Yeah, thats scary x,x) But he doesnt do it often.
Im convinced he "sleep swam" one night, I thought he was blind (so frightened :,c) bumping into everything and disoriented, I know he couldnt see, but the next day he was great XD
I know, sometimes they give me heart attacks with the ways they sleep! I came home once after a short vacation to see that my betta was sleeping with his head in the gravel and his bottom floating a bit crookedly. I thought for sure that he was dead.
