My Frank is on my computer desk next to me in a 3.5gal, so he's constantly staring and flaring at me. When i'm not at my desk, its always filled with random figurines and post-it notes, and i've recently decorated the outside bottom of his tank with christmas tinsel, hahaha, so he's always staring at the pretty shiny things.
Dragonfish's advice seems to work for me, so maybe give it a try :'D

When I put a ping pong ball in my fishes tanks, they freak out. Like they run around and get all scared of it.

My old Betta Sparky got bored sometimes too. When I was close to the tank, he would dance around the tank acting like he was hungry when he wasn't. When I wasn't by the tank, he would swim but he would lay down sometimes. Maybe you could sit next to the tank when you do something other than reading?

That's what I do, I try to sit at my desk as much as I can. And we play this peek-a-boo game where I hide my face behind a book I put between me and the tank, for a bit and then pop out, he was looking at me weird at first, but now he seem to hide himself behind that book too then comes out as I come out, stares at me with big eyes and swims around.

I try to give him something to stare at everyday and to let him flare at a miror a bit everyday.
Until I get another tank *lol*
