Betta twitching: ill or excited?

I brought home a new betta a couple of weeks ago, and ever since I got him, he has wiggled and wagged a lot when I come see him, but he also twitches and even crashes into the substrate! (See video.) Is this normal excited betta behavior or could he be sick?

Looks like it is normal, he may just be seeing his new boundary.
What size tank do you have?

Very nice looking betta! I would say he is fine. I can catch mine doing the same thing from time to time.

Thanks, biller! He's currently in a 2.5 gallon, but I'm going to move him to a 5.5 soon...

Thanks, TyGuy320! He is a pretty guy! (I guess I should say handsome? LOL) He was very pale in his sad cup at the store, so it's been neat to see his color deepen and change!

It just looks like he is seeing his new home, he probably hasn't had a tank that size before.
