Unhappy Play Dead 0.o

Titan just freaked me out a few mins ago. I walked into my room and glanced in his tank and didn't see him. I whent over and looked and spotted him laying on his side on top of the filter where thers less then half a inch of water to the surface. I then Tapped the glass and he zipped away down to the bottom and gave me a derty look for wakeing him.
I quckily did a 50% water change and now he seems fine and is exploring around swimming quite pepley and looking at me and every so often goes up for air. What a way to give me a hart atack after seeing him like that.

hmm. seeing a slight pattern now of investagating around and resting ontop of the filter. It must be relaxing from the vibration of the filter to him like a massage or somethin. XD

Betta fish LIKE sleeping near the surface. That's probably the only reason why he squeezed himself in that tight space. I would suggest getting a tall plant that JUST ABOUT reaches the surface so he can lay on it, or a leaf hammock. They sell them at Petsmart.

Cool. My Betta fish all love their leaf hammocks. I actually made them myself so the don't have any metal in them.
