Is it unusual for a Betta to sleep on the bottom of their tank? There is a cluster of smooth glass beads at the bottom of Cyrusí tank by the edge, and several times Iíve seen him lying on them. Of course it scares me because I thought he was dead, but when I touch the glass, he pops right up and starts swimming around like heís just fine. It doesnít look like heís sick, he acts just fine other than that. Is he just sleeping, or is something wrong?? lol

haha Okay, thanks for the help! :) I just think it looks so weird because my VT actually sleeps in his little tree house. It cracks me up. He actually goes through the front door and sleeps inside, and that the only place he sleeps. lol

Mine does that quite often, but usually on or next to her plant bulbs.
