Lightbulb My Bettas need coffee?

Hello!! I moved 3 bettas (2 males 1female into a much larger tank over thanksgiving. their behavior for the most part is the same except one thing that has me Puzzled. So i was wandering if anyone else has seen this? When it gets dark in the room (5 or 6 p.m. now) and i come in the room turn on the light my three amigos swim around the top of the tank almost in a sleep like state (even passing on the food i drop in, tempora of course) sleep swiming u might call it. then after 1 min or so thier back to thier nosy selfs. never seen that b4

well being that the lights were off they could have thought it was time to go to sleep.
Same think happened to me my betta was sleeping by the heater I turned on his light he didnt move then after a couple of seconds he was a wake I woke him up out of his sleep!

Thats pretty normal for them. I come into a dark room and turn the lights on and they act wierd for a few minutes. I don't think they like going from dark to bright lights right away.

Probably the same reaction we have when going from total darkness to someone putting the lights on in the room. You gotta feel for them.
