Does Your Betta Do This?

In the morning, Atlas swims back and forth a bit while waiting for me to feed him and then he'll lie down on the gravel. I'm sure I'm projecting a bit here but it feels like he's being dramatic and playing dead. When I go up to him he starts swimming back and forth again.

My halfmoon does that too. Sometimes it hard to swim around with such long fins. So I moved him to a 5.5 gallon long tank so its easier for him to reach the surface.

Thank you! I don't see many betta fish with this kind of coloring. Sort of a pale rosy pink with shimmery blues and greens on his almost transparent tail. Much prettier in real life.

I plan to move him to a longer tank someday but I don't have the space right now.
