Bed time is a scary time for bettas..

Does anyone else find it COMPLETELY ADORABLE that our bettas sleep at the same time we do? (when it's all dark) :3

Im guilty of waking up poor Goblin more than once. He likes to sleep on his side on his silk plants near the top of his tank, or in his little cave. He uses the filter to push himself onto the silk plants to lounge. Ive tapped his tank more than once and he looks at me like 'what was that for butthead?'

I'm so lucky I don't have this problem. Rosso is usually awake and roaming around by the time I get up and feed him. I did wake him the other day because he was acting all dead and I had to be certain that he hadn't decided to pass while he was in his temple.

My Red (RIP), a red male VT used to sleep at the bottom, sideways and when you tap on the glass, he wouldn't wake up. You'd have to tap for a minute or two and then he SLOWLY wakes up. It scares me more than a few times.

My current 2 CTs, Spot and Blaze sleep on their plants near the surface so I know they are alive. One Super Delta, Pineapple sleeps afloat and the other sleeps head down, tail up on the bottom...that is scary too.

I do it ALL THE TIME even though every night I tell myself: "I am not going to repeatedly turn on the light to verify that Keller is just sleeping in his log and not dead..." And then I turn on the light... And every time he comes swimming out, wiggle wiggle wiggle. And so I feel obligated to give him a midnight snack.
