Shocking title? I know. But it's true. Sadly. My baby, Spoons, used to be in a large two gallon bowl. He loved it, it had a whisper 1-3 gallon filter, and a big decoration he would hide behind. But I had noticed he would not leave his reflection alone. He wasn't blowing bubble nests anymore which he always did before I noticed him going crazy over the reflection. And there was a small self inflicted tear in his gorgeous shimmery tail. I thought since the glass was curved, he could see his own reflection. Immediately I talked to my Dad about my concerns and he said "Ok, we'll go to the store" To buy me a new tank. A flat sided one though, so he couldn't see his reflection. I got a wonderful tank for 16 dollars, that was a flat sided tank, a rectangle. I put my Betta in a temporary .5 gallon holding bowl that had the same water his old bowl, and siphoned the water from the old bowl to the new tank. I filled the rest of the .5 up with aged conditioned water, and transferred the clean gravel and decor. I also added some stones and fake plants. I put in the filter and plugged it in. Everything was ready. So gently I poured the fish into his new home. He slid out of the nasty little holding bowl, and immediately I noticed him.... CHECKING OUT HIS REFLECTION! I realized the glass also was completely reflective here, ESPECIALLY the two sides. And i turned off the lights that night with him still doing his reflective thingy. I woke up this morning, and turned on his light. He wasn't blowing a bubble nest, resting in the plants, and in his usual sleeping spot behind the filter. He was right in front of my face, staring at his reflection. And two small chunks were missing from his tail. Isn't there anything I can do? The tail tears can be infected easily and especially because of lack of sleep and all the stress. It's hurting me to see him hurting; is there anything I can do? If not, It's okay because I'm starting to accept that I've done pretty much all I can and that all tanks or bowls or whatever will be reflective. So if you know, please tell me. But if you don't, that's O.K. Because I bet he'll be okay....I'm just very worried that he won't.
