Yep. I just caught mine sleeping... and he gave me a scare, cause his lid was tilted and I was scared to death he was dead. Danged cat! >.<

They'll find some place to rest, mine likes it near the top of the tank on a leaf, and stop moving.

I saw him laying on his side which scared me but when I lifted the food slot he swam up and he waited for his food

It's not sleep like ours. They need to rest too. However animals like fish always need to be on the lookout for predators. A fish like a betta can only sleep until it needs to take another breath. I know dolphins only rest half of their brain at a time so they can stay alert and surface for water. However, sharks don't sleep. Betta seem to enjoy having lazy moments.
One time my CT was asleep, and wouldn't wake up. I was tapping on the glass like mad for about a minute before he woke up Dx

Mine always scare me when they sleep, Toffee in particular. He sleeps vertical half floating, scares me every single time... but he's always fine.

I have had my CT, Sushi, for about 4 days and I'm having a hard time getting used to the fact that he sleeps, or rests. He likes to go to the very bottom of the tank and lay on or nosed into the glass rocks down there. It really freaks me out and my husband tells me, I'm being psycho mom. I just worry about my Sushi and would be crushed if he fell asleep and didn't wake up.

I can definitely agree, they really do recognize who feeds them and upkeeps their homes.
