Bettas Sleeping? :D

Does anyone else have odd pictures of their bettas sleeping?

Here is Buddha. He literally fell asleep after I cleaned his tank and put it back on the shelf. I thought he was shocked, but he swam around when I agitated the tank slightly, but he went right back under the eel and stayed still.

Every night I see my fish sleeping in the same spot. He sleeps in the back next to his heater in one of the plants. He sleeps super deep, nothing wakes him! I can turn on the light, point a flash light at him and he doesn't move one bit! I would take a pic and share but I don't think you would be able to see him because he's so far in the back and camouflaged among the plant and background.

I remember the first time it happened and I literally was looking for him for about 15mins. I even thought he got sucked into the filter or somehow jumped out of the tank even though I have a lid. I was panicking! I finally got out my flashlight and searched every inch of the tank and when I saw him, it kinda made me jump! Like he was watching me the whole time, LOL!

Sorry for the novel, but just had to share!

I can't get pictures because they wake up when I get close enough to take any. But my guys sleep on the intake filter sponges, slapped up on the side with all their fins spread out flat. The suction is just enough that they stay there and don't have to use any effort to hold themselves up LOL

I love the pictures you all have gotten of your fish resting :D

The Magster is a big ol' grumpy-bear and sleeps behind his huge decorative tree cave where I can't spy him. Wystan sleeps under the heater behind his plant. In the current. Which seems an odd resting place. Padan liked the top of the thermometer til the water level became too low to make that feasible. I have no idea where he sleeps. I think he rotates his sleeping spots. I've been catching him resting on the gravel underneath his usual feeding spot.

Mine either sleeps on the filter intake (like Twilight Storm's), or inside of his cave. Neither of these areas are odd, but it sure is adorable!

I don't know that I've ever caught him sleeping, but Chicory will come take catnaps on his mossball. It must make a good cushion.
