Sleeping Betta

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.

Wierd! Some bettas are like that, though.

That's wierd but it's not anything bad. I like to sleep on my stomache and my betta does too. It's safe to say that bettas are like humans in a way.

Mine sleeps on his belly...
Or back.
(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.

Oh, he was fine back then. He just picked a very odd position to sleep in. xD
