My fish Riki, keeps sleeping on his plants.. this is the 2nd day i got him.. he sleeps on his plastic plants and makes bubble nest, like small ones slowly. He has a heater and is set to 78-80 degrees and eats normally like all other fishes. I was just wondering if this is normal for a bettafish to just sleep on a plant and swim occasionally for like 5minutes then sleeps again.. sometimes he doesn't do this and is active
by the way 3/4 of his tank has direct sunlight from about 2m away from the window and the rest is shade
These are the equipments
I have a 25w Heater with automatic temperature setter.
8L tank (2.5ish gallons) w lids.
Inside the tank is 1 big plant and 3 small ones so he can play and hide
water ager (I got a bucket outside and measured approx. 20L of water and pour 5mL of the water ager in so its safer that way then poured 8L into the tank)
Betta Bio-Gold pellet food (trustworthy as he eats it and my old bettafish loved it)
Is the temperature too high?
Is his activities normal for a bettafish?
Any other requirements I should be notified?
