Betta fish forage for food at the bottom of there tank if there hungry and if there is food in there because they eat non stop.

Betta fish sleep on the bottom of the tank. I've never seen one close its eyes but they will often rest on the bottom when there is no action going on around them. Betta like to be around movement. That is why we have my betta fish in our living room.

if your betta fish doesnt go up for air its probably dead.

This can depend on what type of food you are feeding your fish. If you are feeding betta bites, then typically the fish would eat from the surface. If you are feeding flakes, then it's possible the fish is simply waiting for the food to sink. It's not uncommon for fish to forage around the bottom for food that may have settled there.

i would suggest picking a Betta that is swimming around in their container, not a Betta fish that is at the bottom of the container looking bored
