I've been wondering about this myself.

Phillip is constantly on the move. He's extremely happy in his 5 gallon, flaring now and then, building nests, eats well......I'm just wondering if he would be even happier in a 10 gallon with a few more friends than just Pookie the Catfish? Pookie seems extremely happy as well, he never hides and he seems to like Phillip.

I have hiding places and resting places but I never see them using those "beds".

Maybe I'm just using this as an excuse to get a second tank?

Fish will rest when needed- they don't sleep like us, but go into a state of rest.. and it varies on how long based on age and health, etc.

Bettas, like other fish, don't become "fat".. females tend to be more rounded as they carry eggs.. and when they grow their eggs out and become "eggy" they are even bigger.

A variety, and high protein diet is recommended, multiple small meals per day.

So the females could be eggy, or you are over feeding.. how much and of what are you feeding? And are the females together in a tank?

Breeder so I have too many to count and too many named to list here!
