betta hiding or playing in the leaves

Ever since ive added substrate to my tank the water qualityhas gotten clearer, the plants are actually growing, and bow I notice by betta likes to like.... Swim around and wedge himself on the edges of the walls. And in between the wisteria, it looks normal ish... Bit is that behavior something I should be concerned about?

I will try and post a pic of mine. I have lots of plants and on certain ones he likes to wedge himself between the leaves and substrate. As if he trying not to move or float away.

They're just goofy that way sometimes! I wouldn't worry about it.

I wouldn't worry about it. As long as he's still swimming around and eating, then you should worry. Is he getting hurt? Like, are his fins getting torn or something? If not, then it's okay. :)

(My little guy spent all of yesterday thinking he was a cory! LOL)

1 Dwarf Gourami - Balin
8 Neon Tetras
1 Otocinclus

RIP Plagueis.
