Still don't ever come out much unless feeding time since I got a betta 2 days ago and used same backgroumd he was non stop flaring and attacking my black wall (back ground) after seeinf it the next morning today after waking up I'm convicined it might be the background scaring my cichlid? Took both backgrounds off 20 and 6.5 hope it'll make a difference for the cichlid barley see him after month and a half or more of having him/her but the betta seems more calm and swims freely now besides fighting the back so maybe it wasthe black petco background? Not 1st time ive heard of this!! Anyone else?

If it’s reflective he might be seeing his reflection.

How active in and around the tank are you?

If there’s a lot of movement or rearranging of decor he might be skittish from not being left alone in the new tank.
