    My Clown Loaches love a good kip. Many's the time I look over and they're all cosied up together on their sides piled on top of each other.

    My comets find a place in the tank and rest near the bottom. They only move slightly to correct for the water movement.

    ROFL!

    Anyway, I have a pet snake and I always assumed it was similar to him. They sleep, they just don't have an obvious way of showing it. You can actually scare the sh*t out of them if you're not careful.

    It's when you startle a fish and it zooms across the tank and smacks against the glass which is worrying.
