Wishing I could help you here but I'm having a similar problem right now. Jessie is at the bottom though and very listless.

I hope Sonic is doing good

He may just be stressed from transport. Keep an eye on him for a day or two and see if behavior changes. Give him a nice water change too. Have you checked your water parameters?

When Zeus sleeps he goes to the surface in a corner and leans on the glass. it freaked me out the first few days, but now I know he's ok, and when i wake up in the morning he is swimming through the anubias leaves and around his drift wood.

Yeah my bettas just clonck out wherever they want, sometimes the top and sometimes the bottom. It's quite cute, cuz I'll have to come up and stare for a few seconds before they realize I'm there and come see me.
