Normal Betta Activity?

What exactly does a betta do in a 10-15 gallon tank? i have always seen betta's in little jars or bowls so i dont really know what thier normal behavior in a big tank should be. therefore i dont know if the way he is acting is normal:

Regularly swimming to the top for Air, but the returning to the corner on the bottom where he stays most of the time.

swimming through the bubbles of the Air stone and riding the current to the top.

he looks like he is having fun but the sitting in the corner worries me a little.

please let me know what normal behavior is.

If he is playing in the bubbles and current and not showing any signs of illness he is probably fine. The corner is probably just his resting place, bettas are not good swimmers and can tire out quickly. Nice to know that your betta has a nice big home .

Everything sounds normal except one thing, but do you have a heater? Lying in the corner is strange, and usually happens when the water is too cold. A heater should fix it up.
