I've only had my betta for a few days and have a LED lamp light in a acrylic tank. It's now dark outside and I turned his light on. The room it's in I turned the light off because I just get sensitive to long periods of light and this way I can appreciate the tank from the couch.
He's flaring crazy hard at the corners. While I've read that some flaring at new surroundings is normal, he is seriously bugging out and pecking at the tank and being so wiggly. Is this something he will get over or do I have a concern for stressing himself out? I'm so afraid of him getting way overworked.
Any fixes or input? I'm getting plants in a bit and hope it helps the back corners out where he flares the most.
Do I have to then do my light cycle during the day and not have lights on at all?
