float or no?

Well I wasnt 100% sure where to post this curious question, but when Bettas die, do they float or sink to the bottom? is it both or just one over the other?

I've seen both. Some float at the top and some sink to the bottom.

The two I've had that have died have always sunk. I don't know if maybe it depends on how long they are dead as to whether they float or sink. I do know that snails sink when they die but that doesn't really matter here LOL

I think they sink when their swim bladder is not full of air or they don't have much air in them.
