    Betta Fish Care
    Does anyone else have a fish that sleep on the bottom of the tank, on their stomach? Ive had my beta for a few months and hes in great health and very active during the day.

  2. My betta sleeps during the day and is active at night?

    Betta Fish Care
    I'm pretty sure this is the opposite of what he should be doing :/ I had a great betta who recently passed :( -And always slept at night. He was also very feisty and always flaring at my fingers, which I loved - the new guy is very passive and only comes out of his cave in the evening. ..Does...

    Hello, my little Daryl is a happy little boy who is usually very active. I have had him for a week and today, he seems to be lethargic. :cry: He stays in the corner in direct light, right next to the heater. His fins are still.

  4. Pulling All-Nighters with Your Betta

    Betta Fish Care
    I've been pulling some all-nighters lately (which is why I keep posting at odd times when no one's up and about), or at least really-late-nighters, due to schoolwork and other extracurricular work I have to get done. The only light ever on during these wee hours is about six feet from my betta...

    I recently bought a male half-moon betta from my local PetSmart. I have owned 2 other betta fish in my lifetime, as well as African Aquatic Dwarf Frogs. This betta, (named Pluto) has been fine the first two days but now shows a large interest in hiding/sleeping. He comes up for air and every...
  6. Sleeping Patterns

    Betta Fish Care
    I am not sure if my betta is completely ok. He has been laying on the floor of his tank for the last couple of hours. He may be trying to get out of the light to sleep because my roommates are inconsiderate and often leave the light on when they go into the living room (at 4:00 am and 8:00 am...

  10. Sleeping bettas!

    Betta Chat
    So, my old betta, Chloe, had some quirks. She'd sleep almost everywhere. She slept in the fake plants.. she slept on the rocks.. she slept at the top of the tank.. and she even slept inside of a decorative "sunken slug bug." She had a lovely tank, yet she slept out of her car ;) ANYWAY. My new...
