chicken of the sea
I've got a 55 gallon tank holding one betta, twelve neons and nine corys, also a bunch of plants. The betta does his usual thing at the top, he spends time with his reflection, swims all over the place, seems happy. He swims all over the tank, spends a lot of time swimming along the bottom, sometimes he schools with the neons (weird) and sometimes he hangs out all still in his castle. My question is this: Is it typical behaviour for a betta to hang out all over the tank? I always thought bettas mainly kept to the top. Also, is it normal behaviour for him to spend several minutes just resting in an enclosed space or against a plant?
