Scarlet Badis chasing reflection

ThiccBeluga

My Scarlet Badis has been chasing his reflection on and off all day, any tips on reducing reflection? I've tried lighting up the area around the tank, changing the tank angle and turning off the tank lights completely while keeping the room lit but nothing seems to deter him. Thought blocking out the side with a sheet of paper might help but he's still going. Is frosted film a good idea?

Cardboard should do the trick.

Out of cardboard right now but I've taped up some magazine pages, doesn't seem to make a difference. Could a lot of tannins in the water make reflections worse? New driftwood should've been soaked longer, I'd do a 50% water change to lighten it up but I worry about the shrimps.

Are you sure it's the reflection and not glass surfing? Does the fish display to its reflection?
