It's normal for some fish and Gouramis often do it . Actually, it seems that Anabantoids in general like to do that...at least in my experience.Thanx!
I came home friday evening after work, turned on the tank and I guess he/she was just sleeping on this fake leaf. It was there for about 5 minutes and at first I thought it was dead, but it was moving it's eyes. I decided it was a perfect time to take a pic. He/She stayed for another 5 miutes while I took pictues. The pic is actually two photos and I combined them with photoshop. I couldn't get a clear enough picture with just one photo. Now he/she sleeps on that leaf all the time. Is it normal for fish to rest on something when they sleep? I've never seen this before.
