Is it weird...

that casper likes to curl up like a dog in his castle and "sleep"?
ive noticed him circle around inside his castle then sink down and lay there for maybe an hour or so then swim around his tank like normal and play with skittles. do bettas sleep? is he taking a nap lol i just found this to be an odd behavior since skittles does nothing like this

Hersey does this in his tree trunk decoration. He does not curl up but he will lay in there.

Lol! :P Sounds like you have a cutie there. My Vulcan used to do that, but lately he's been sleeping under plants. Yeah, bettas just sleep in all sorts of weird positions.

Haha.. my betta "fish" does that. I have a little shark that he can hide in that he loves to curl up in to sleep. Since I've upgraded to the bigger tank however he has been sleeping next to the heater (which he has never had before so I'm sure he loves it). I think its cute when they curl up in little balls to sleep.. its like a dog :D
