Question Bottom Buddy

My new boy, Twitchy who i just got today around 3:30 is just always staying at the bottom of his tank still. (1.17g)
He seems perfectly fine. He eats he swims around (mostly around the bottom) and goes up for air on a regular basis. I just dont get why hes only around the bottom?!
I have another Betta in the same kind of tank who is a total sweetheart and loves to swim around and investigate things!!

Is this just Twitch's personality? Is he just really chilled out or is there a problem??

Oh yeah!! He also does these twitchy motions! Thats why he's named Twitchy.

My new guy, I got Him 2 days ago would rather eat from the bottom of the tank for some strange reason too.

He seems to much prefer it down there
