My old betta used to do this, eventually he either figured it out or got bored with it because he never does anymore.ajgravedigger13 said:
Depends on the Betta really. Some don't flare even when holding a mirror up to the tank. Mine still flares a lot, but he's definitely slowed his roll a bit compared to the first month I had him.ajgravedigger13 said:Thanks everybody so if I left the light on line normal he'll eventually get over it or something?
Flaring is a pretty normal occurrence for bettas, but it can make them nervous. If your betta keeps flaring at himself, you could try placing a picture (not a flat color, since this aids reflection!) behind the glass or putting a plant in front of the area where he sees his reflection most.ajgravedigger13 said:How do you help a Betta with flaring at his own reflection in the tank walls? It only happens when the light is on but I hate keeping him in such a dark corner of the room all the time
