Mirror???

We just got a class fish and the instructor of our class keeps putting a mirror in front of the bowl... From what I've heard they might try and attack the mirror and end up hurting themselves against the glass whenever he sees it he flares up... What advice can you give me??

misplace the mirror on purpose.
your fish will get stressed if this keeps happening,
perhaps you could find an information sheet on the web
that clearly shows that he will become stressed,
and leave it on the teachers desk.

It is good when done in moderation, living alone with nothing else to do but eat will make it waste away faster..
It serves as a form of 'exercise' for the betta, but remember the keyword is in MODERATION.
If used too much it will defnitely stress-out your betta and make him prone to illnesses, and eventually death.

So how much is too much?? I have tried it a few times, but I am scared that I will overwork him. I read a lot of stuff about betta fish before I bought one and I saw something where it said you can use a mirror for him to interact, but do not leave it there all the time.
