Flaring at reflection

He's in a glass bowl and keeps seeing his reflection on the side and he's freaking you he goes to it about ever minute or so flips out then goes away is this okay or is there anything I can do to stop his reflection from showing up? he's just going nuts and I don't want him to all the time..

I myself adjusted the lighting in the tank area to prevent his reflection from showing up so much. However, it seems that Buddha has lost the urge to go after his reflection, so I just let him do as he wants.

I don't know if there is a such thing as flaring becoming dangerous unless the fish starts to get stressed and/or injured. But I'm not an expert so hopefully someone else can tell you :)

Also, cute tank design ^^

The only solution is to turn off your light.
You don't have natural plants in your tank so having the light on is unnecessary unless you're looking at your fish closely.
