Betta temper tantrum

This is my friends betta and he does a rather odd thing late at night when she gets ready to shut off his light and cover the tank with a towel. He throws a hissy fit and this is only at night once he sees his towel and knows it's lights out for him. Have you guys ever seen a betta throw a temper tantrum before? It's so funny. At first I thought he was just seeing his reflection but he looks at the surface a lot as well and actually flares at his owner a few times too. >.<

A hissy fit! That's quite amusing! Nope, I've never seen a betta fish throw a tantrum like that before. Now I'm thinking that my boy's really mellow XD

The change in lighting probably allows him to see his reflection more and he think he's going to be attacked by himself.

I thought that too, but then I read the commentary with it and saw that he also goes crazy like this when he sees the owner folding towels, so I don't think it's just his reflection that is causing this.

He's funny, I know the feeling wish I had a spunky fella like him, some day maybe. Hollow use to be like that but he's getting old and acting like an old man. If he had a cane he would shake it and tell me to get off his lawn.

Yeah she throws a towel over the tank as fast as possible to calm him down. Less light less he can see and just has to go to sleep. His issue is like a kid he doesn't want to xD, he wants to stay awake and work on that bubble nest he has going.
