Change to natural gravel. He can't get through it. He's not stupid he's just curious. Bettas love to explore.

Wow lol that's kind of bad. I have no clue, maybe anchor the decorations better, or take out anything he can get caught under? I'm not really sure!

Do you have a cave or something in the tank that he can get into so he can hide and/or get out of the light?

Also-how is your water quality-what size tank, how much and how ofter are the water changes, additives used etc.....he may be trying to get away from something either parasite, ammonia, DOC's or light....etc.......he may just be adjusting to the tank too...how long have you had him and has he been doing this from day one or is this new behavior?
