How does you betta sleep?

First I came across a post and somebody had a betta that slept vertically in the water, and others saying it was normal. About 10 minutes ago I went down stairs to measure my tank to double check that it was the system I thought it was. I had to turn on a light to see the tape I was using and I peered into the tank and there is my betta laying sideways ontop of a fake plant. I thought he was dead! It took a couple more seconds before life returned and he slid off of his 'bed'. So I am thinking about getting him a hammock.

He looked a little uncomfortable on the plant but he was definitely sacked out!lol Gave me a huge scare.

How do your fish sleep? Have they scared you like mine did me.

Alejandro sleeps in a weird position where he looks "mangled" up in a silicone sea anemone decoration. His face sometimes points upward and he arranges his body so he's just squished in there between the projections of the anemone.

Cornelius sleeps on the floor behind driftwood usually.

Purplius . . it's hard to tell, he's between the floor and another silicone sea anemone too. (They love those things, apparently).

Limoncello sleeps under driftwood usually.

The first time I caught any of them sleeping, I thought it was the cutest thing I have ever seen. But yeah, you could mistake their weird sleep positions for being dead at first because they are little weirdos. :)
