Its most likely a Malaysian broadtail. One strain of this species will find a rock face and swim back and forth in an attempt to show off its tail colors and attract mates. If it does not find a mate within a few months, it's fins actually become rigid and enables the betta to climb out of the water and find a new area to display in so you will want to make sure the tank is tighly sealed. Now I must also warn you that I am completely joking right now and some fish do things just because they want to.

lmao... ok you almost had me with that story Mike.

My betta does that as well. He explores a bit, and enjoys his caves... but LOVES to do laps of the back wall. I think he just likes to go fast.
