Betta obsessed with one side of tank :???:

Hi there,
My new betta is really obsessed by one side of his tank.
I've stuck some cardboard over that side in case he can see his reflection or something but he's still just swimming back and forth on the one side.
Why is he doing that? Will he get tired? Is there anything else that can be done to encourage him to stop?

I've read the betta care stickies but couldn't see anything about this.

Cinna likes to hang out on the left side of his tank because the heater is there. It has no problems heating the whole tank but I guess it just feels nicer to him and he likes to hide under the heater sometimes because as of right now its the best place for him to hide. It's possible that your fish is doing something similar or he doesn't like the color or shape of objects inside or outside his tank near that side. If the area is brighter or darker than the other side that could be it too. Maybe you could try moving some things around or even the tank itself and see if the behavior persists.
