Rocks

So Mercutio every now and then swims to the bottom of his tank into the rocks. The rocks are bigger and smooth edged so they won't hurt him, but why does he do it? I'll be on the computer and hear clanking and it's him swimming at the rocks. Any idea?

Maybe he sees his reflection in the rocks.

Hmmm maybe the waters too cold? Sometimes they'll do funky things if they're cold.

the rocks are white so I don't think he can see his reflection, I suppose cold could be possible?

I would think he sees his reflection. Do they have any kind of sheen to them?

there's kind of an iridescence to them to make them seem like a pearl, that just makes his eyesight seem really good

Maybe something with the way the light shines on them makes him think he needs to go after them? lol sounds weird but maybe :) Bettas do strange things.

Maybe hahaha, and he's not hurting himself so I'm not too worried, I'm just really curious, he doesn't do it all the time either
