Sleeping fish

Sometimes when I come in at night I see all my fish just laying around and I think it's hilarious but I seen one of my rustys laying next to an unknown black cichlid

So funny you posted this! Today I freaked out when I saw 2 of my Khulis laying on their sides half way under the limestone. I thought the worse! I went to pick up the rock and completely ruined their beauty sleep! They are so funny. One fell asleep at the top of this little ship in my tank with its head hanging off, but of course moved when I went to take a pic. I don't get it. They have perfectly good caves, sand and plants but they choose the weirdest places.

My betta does this all the time. He did it a few hours after I got him.... Went to check on him and he was laying sideways in the grass, I thought for sure he was dead. Started grumbling at myself because I've never killed a betta in a matter of hours and I was mad, went and grabbed the cup to put him back in to take him back to the store, stuck my hand in there and he TOOK OFF. Scared the crap out of me! Lol he does it around noon every day!

I did that the first day I had my Danios, one of them was resting motionless in some of my plants and I thought it was dead! I was gonna bury him in the garden (I'm a softy!) but when I got a box to lift him into, he darted across the tank! Now I think about it I can't believe I thought it was dead :P

My clown loaches used to do that ( but they are know to do that ). When I first got them, I didn't know and I was was left speechless ( with dismay ) when I saw one upside down/on its side. But my fingers touched the water and the clown straitened out and swam off to its buddies. :p
