Most sleep behind and plants, one girl uses one house and two share the other house.

Mine sleep pretty deeply, usually just lying around on the sand. They spend so much energy begging all day long that I am beginning to believe I could drive a truck through our living room and they wouldn't notice.

One night I decided to do a water change at night (something like 11pm or so) since I was already wide awake. Buttercup must have been already asleep; because while usually he spends the whole time chasing around my hand, this night he was very groggy, and was rather in a daze! It was pretty comical. Next morning he was chipper as usual and doing his morning wiggle.

My boy Jango won't sleep in any of the real plants, but he loves sleeping right behind his long/high fake plant in the back of the tank. I occasionally see him sleeping in the teacup, but not often. He's so adorable when he sleeps, haha.

I bought one of those leaf hammocks because it was on sale for a dollar so I figured hey, why not and today I caught him sleeping on it! He looked SO SWEET.

Balthazar gets himself wedged into his fake plant at night, but sometimes I catch him snoozing on top of his pineapple during the day.

Oberon sleeps anywhere and everywhere but always moves if I go and have a look at him. However his tank is not far from where I sit so I can observe him at my leisure. He looks so cute perched on his silk plants at the top of the tank or draped dramatically over one of the white marble stones at the bottom :)

I had to buy tetras to put in the tank with Emo because he'd stay up all night watching us hoping we weren't suffocating. He thought we had to come up for air like bettas!

So he'd sit there awake all night and sleep all day by whomever was closest to him until I put tetras in and he discovered it was just HIM that had to come up for air.

Emo was SOOOOO emo!
