how do your fish sleep?

I'm always curious if you've almost had a heart attack when waking your fish and see them in a precarious position my little green chromis likes to line up behind the heater to sleep, straight up and down. today he was almost upside down like he was dead

i turn the lights out every night, and they usually have places they go. my domino goes under the rocks somewhere, and the 3-stripe has a favorite spot in one of the fake coral rocks. I dont know where the yellow tails go.

Every night I turn off the aquarium and my room light. So it's pitch black. I wake up turn on my aquarium light and they're swimming around happy as can be

My guppy tank stays active like that. My angels kind of stare anyway so it's hard to tell with them lol

All of my guys have their "beds". My platys will sleep in the leaves of my Amazon sword, The Corys will sleep in the Java Fern, The Angel usually sleeps on moss on my DW, etc...

I have found some of the smaller guys sleeping on the powerhead which trips me out cause I think they're stuck or injured. Never are though

Its pretty crazy to see them all when the start settling down. about half of them are awake and swimming when i turn the light on but I have another tank in the room who's light is set to a timer so that might wake them up.

Mine have beds too. My cherry barbs go by the heater, panda Cories squeeze into one cave, guppies on the substrate, platies at the surface. German blue rams behind the plants and dwarf Gouramis in the plants. Otos snuggled up behind the filter.

Mine just float at the top except for the guppies who sleep on the plants. My betta sleeps on his hammock I bought him, it's cute watching him, he doesn't move

My GSPs curl up in the sand to sleep, preferably near the rocks or flower pots they have for decoration. It's so cute when they turn around and get comfy in the sand, and they tend to look a little irritated with me in the morning when I wake them up with the light. Never really noticed my guppies or angels sleep, though.

Most of my fish are nocturnal so they sleep all day. One of my catfish sleeps in a log, one in a plant, and one in this fake skull I have.
