I'm a new owner of a very handsome betta named Dovakiin. I bought a 20g tank for him (decorated now), and I also bought both a teenie weenie bristle-whisker plecostomus and a school (four) "neon" fish to keep him company (he's a spoiled baby). Before any one jumps the gun and shakes their finger at me, Dovakiin gets along ecstatically with them, and they aren't even really neon! The only thing that he doesn't get along well with is his own reflection. I know that betta males typically don't do so hot with other bettas, but my tank keeps showing his reflection on it's sides. Is this normal? I put a background up to eliminate any possible reflection from that side, but he literally wears himself out from flaring at it (his reflection) so much. Granted that this makes for some great picture opportunities, I'm worried about him. His color fades to a lighter purple when he flares up for an extended amount of time (from what information I've gathered, this is due to stress). Is there anything I can do to reduce this reflection thing?
