Few odd questions

Hey guys, just got a few questions to futher my knowledge.

Firstly, what is the 'usual' or average behaviour for female guppies? Are they meant to be swimming around having fun or resting under leaves etc. Just interested or does it depend on their personality?

Secondly, diagnosing, as we all know is very hard and my cousin has a betta like myself. However he's been having problems with it and iv been struggling to help him as iv only had mine for a couple of months. It has a small white minor 'blister' almost at the joining of his tail fin and his body. Would you call this ulcers or what?

I had a few more but im tired so il ask them in the morning. Bye

My female guppies swim around almost full time, with one or two males following hoping to get lucky. If I had a female just resting at the bottom I would assume I would soon have one less female.

I never knew that guppies stopped swimming. When I used to have guppies they moved 100% of the time and they were usually swimming at the surface.
