Yes, they sleep. They cannot close their eyes because they have no eyelids, but they tend to stay still on a leaf or a decoration or even just floating in the water. XD

When they sleep, they just sit there, and then their little fins start moving and they're back up and running!

Mine seems to enjoy sleeping under a bright blue plastic spoon that I put in there to keep him company, when he seemed to be bored. Now I'm not allowed to take it out, or my fish gets cranky!

Mine either sleep on the gravel of the bottom at night or at rest times during the day I see them floating at the surface along the side of the tank.

Little Guy likes to float near the edges of the tank when he's resting or in Buddha's head. I thought he was sick when I first saw him sleep at the top of the water o.o but I've done tests on the water and it's all good and he eats and looks healthy, so I figure he just likes the freeness of that way of sleeping LOL. Maybe it gives him floaty, happy dreams? Or maybe he just doesn't want the shrimp bugging him :P

Gemma sleeps behind a log and silk plant that I put for her at the back of the tank. It freaks me out sometimes because she's completely hidden form view!

Othello used to sleep in his pagoda, but now that I've added floating plants and a lily pad, he likes to sleep among those instead.
I've seen you all around the forum! And it seems to me u ended up naming 'no name' betta no name XD
