What should I do?

Cream has an attitude problem he has been flaring excessively and I don't know why and its been going on for a while now and now he has blown his tail fin badly and he was my only one that didn't have tail problems :( I checked there's nothing reflective in his view and neither of my other fish are in his sight so I don't know what the problem is and he's always flaring.

Is there a tank light? He may be flaring at his reflection.

Yeah I tried both leaving it off and turning it on and he still flares. He's in a semi-hex could it be the angles making a reflection? What can I do to fix?

bump. what can I do to get him to stop if its the angles of the tank that is causing it? He's always at the front of it flaring so i think its the problem and I never see him go near the bottom anymore.

Is there any way you can put something in front of that specific area like these division screens:

DIY tank dividers

He only flares at a specific point right? I'm talking about cutting only a small narrow piece to cover that section that he flares so it doesn't affect the look of your tank.
