In the darkness
People also ask
Do betta fish sleep at night?
As mentioned, Bettas do most of their sleeping at night, although they do like to take short naps during the day. They will most commonly do this by lying on the bottom of their tank. If your Betta likes to chill at the bottom of their tank, you may want to grab them a Betta Hammock to sleep on.
Why is my Betta sleeping like a leaf?
They look like plant leaves and they are made especially to accommodate napping bettas. If your betta appears to be sleeping, just let him rest. Disturbing him may cause stress, and stress is one of the biggest reasons betta fish die too soon. Unless he is exhibiting other problems, it is best to leave him be.
How much light does a betta fish need?
Your betta is similar to you in that he needs a certain amount of darkness each day so that he knows when to sleep. Ideally, you should provide your fish with between eight and 12 hours of daylight and 12 to 16 hours of darkness each day. You should certainly not leave the light on in your tank at night.
