How do adult Oscar sleep? I notice my sleep or rest in strange postition. Chris would lay like he dead but he breathing normally etc, then he would swim like usually. Do Oscar sleep on their side or what postition? Never seen how big fish sleep.

every now and then I'll see one of my oscars "sleeping" laying down, first time I seen this I thought he was dead. for the most part mine will be still and huddle together in the one corner behind the big fake plant.

When I'm up late my Oscar knows if I have gone to bed, because when I go by the tank at about 12 at night to sleep he's still just sitting in the middle of the tank. And then he follows me wishing I'd feed him

Most cichlids sleep laying on the bottom of the tank. This is why a lot of people don't recommend keeping catfish with cichlids. Because the catfish tend to be nocturnal and swim all over the bottom.
