Strange/funny/weird Betta behaviors

I thought I would start a thread about what weird behaviors your fish have.

My new (I've had him less than a month) betta Vega has two funny habits. The first is that likes to sit on the top most leaf of his silk plant like he is going to rest, then he scoots himself off the leaf slowly and free falls to the bottom of the tank. He then loops around the bottom of the tank and repeats. It's the strangest thing I think I have seen a betta do but he seems to enjoy it.

The other habit he has is he likes to swim in the current made by the filter. He also likes to bite at the water coming into the tank off the lip of the filter. I've heard other users on here say their betta's like to swim in the filter currents too.

I just thought I would share and wondered if other users have observed their fish doing strange things.

Muchacho likes to swim repeatably across the tank in the same place and do the exact same thing over and over.

He also likes to wait till the pellet goes down the filter current and tries to swim against the current to eat it.
He is so energetic.

Little Pearl is still wondering if I'm not as scary as she thinks I am, and is learning quickly that my cat is one of the most interesting things she has ever seen, because she's most likely never seen a cat before in her life.

My Caravaggio has taken up swimming little circles around the moss ball in his tank. It's ADORABLE.

Reuben keeps eating sand.
There is no food anywhere in the sand.
He eats it then spits it out. >__>

Both my fish seem to think inanimate objects in their tank are their mortal enemies. Dol's constantly tackling his thermometer and the leaves of his big leafy plant. Morpheus for some reason enjoys tackling his cave. Weird :S
