My female Lulu always scares me by going to sleep behind the filter, in the tiniest place in her tank. When she's asleep her color fades a lot, and I freak out soo much! And haha at Jrf456 that is exactly what I think when she wakes up and wiggles around:D My boy Charlie, like to lay tilted on the bottom of the tank and it scares me to death. -,-

My fish used to sleep on the gravel on his side while he lived in his 2 gallon...It used to always freak me out and I would tap on the tank to see if he would move..He did..and he never looked happy...
He doesn't sleep like that much anymore now that he is in his 5 gallon though.

Haha. It's so true. After I first got live plants I saw my Scuzi all twisted up in the floating, whatever it was. I panicked, opened the tank, and he looked up and immediately went OPEN LID MEANS FOOD!
Keep falling for it too. At least he doesn't look so dead when he naps on the anubias leaves.

While I've been gone for the summer my mother has been taking care of him (and doing a really good job!). Well some nights she doesn't get home and around to him until abtou 10:30 at night. By then he's usually asleep, only to be woken up for his supper. Strange thing is he never eats. As mother puts it, he's stunned as a bat. I even saw him ignore a bloodworm that actually touched him (nearly in the eye too!). It's funny, and now that I figure out he needs his feeding schedule adhered to, I'm not so worried. He attacks the pellets viciously the next morning.

I agree, this thread should keep going! I've done this several times especially if I'm checking on an ill betta. Not good when they don't feel good to be scared awake. :(

My male betta loves to squeeze into the tightest places it can find. Twice today he managed to squeeze through a bunch of java fern stems and just stayed there motionless ignoring me tapping on the glass. He of course has the strength to get free but he always seems like he is in no rush to swim free and even takes a few laps before going up for air Always a scary site to see

Lelouch treats sleep as if he's waiting for an attack. If he's asleep he will wake right up even when I'm just standing there quietly and he wont' beg for food.

He'll flare and basically tell me to GTHO of his face.

Lelouch of the Petsmart Rebellion - Orchid VT

Yugi - German Sheperd/Pitbull mix. The real King of the house.

There are no coincidences in this world...Only the inevitable.....

To the Betta's whom passed on: I'll never stop loving you...Take care of each other under the rainbow bridge....
