Question is my Betta sleeping?

idk if my Betta is sick .. or possibly sleeping. at night and sometimes he seems to float at the top then swim around a little bit.. but then go back to the top. so could he possibly be sleeping? ? and he also keeps his top fin down in this state.. .which is unusual for him. he usually is bright and cheery with all fins spread out.

If he just does this at night I wouldn't worry too much. Some bettas sleep on the bottom of the tank and some stay at the top. I have one who floats on his side at night. Most of the others sleep on the bottom, some pretty soundly, too. lol Sometimes I have to jiggle the container to get them to wake up. lol

lol yeah. my boys sometimes sleep at the bottom and sometimes at the top. I guess it's just wherever they want to be.

Is there any decor, maybe he just needs something to lodge himself in when he sleeps.
