I have 3 bettas, and they each have their own personality. I've had them all for about a month. They replaced 3 goldfish won in the state fair ping pong ball toss (after an additional 9 Petsmart goldfish, and 12 dead goldfish later, we changed to bettas!) One crowntail betta hangs out ALL the time in the same spot at the top of the tank, along the edge and in the corner. It lays so near the top that it frequently appears to be laying sideways to keep its top fin in the water. It just started blowing a bubble nest, and does not appear to be in any distress. So, experienced betta owners... I guess this is "normal" betta behavior?
