Is this normal?

My beta fish likes to hang like this in is plant, does it look normal to you? Is he just resting / sleeping or is it a sign of something bad? He doesn't d it all the time. He is still active, but this is the second time this morning he has did this.

Is them Bubbles by his mouth?
Looks to me like he might be trying to start a bubble nest?

go to the betta pics category and look under "i caught bluey napping!" you'll see pics of my betta hanging out in his grass. They love that grass! I have the same one, tho mine doesn't glow in the dark. :)

Shari Eggen - your Sushi sounds like he may have SBD (Swim Bladder disorder). Fish often have trouble staying in a normal upright position when they have SBD. How much are you feeding him, and what are you feeding him? Is his stomach area distended at all? Bettas often develop SBD after becoming bloated from overfeeding or poor diet.

Whats the water temp. at? If it's below 74 degrees F., it's too cold. Bettas become VERY lethargic in colder water. Also, it weakens their immune system (as I have learned with Tian-Tian).

Ok finally he moved and swam around for an hour. He just went back though a few minutes ago. The temp is 78 I have a heater. He made maybe 10 bubbles.
