Curse Reflective Tanks! :/

I released my newest edition and he's spazzing out because he sees his reflection in the tank... Err... It makes me mad/sad because I don't feel it's right for him to live stressed out in a tank with reflective glass! Do you think he'll get used to it? Oh! And he currently doesn't have a tank light (the bulb's burnt out) so his tank is darker than the room... Could that make the tank reflective?

If there are a lot of hiding spaces and barriers and the tank is big he should be fine when the light is fixed live or silkplants might help also a floating Betta log Betta fish love them.

Alright! I bought a HUGE fake plant that goes in the center, Strauss has plenty of space to swim still, I bent the leaves out in different direction, so it wasn't just straight up.

Good that sounds good as long as it is not plastic it hurts fins silk is best but your Betta will llove it how big is the tank anyways is it heated hopefully your Betta will live the 7-8years like a well kept Betta.

It is plastic/rubber but I did the test using nylon and didn't rip... I have the same plants (not in a giant boquet though xD) in my other tank... Never, ever had any issues with them! ^.^

Actually a lighted tank in a dark room is very reflective. I like to make sure there's a small lit up space between my tank and any wall.

Other than that, he'll just have to get used to it.

He's seems to have started realizing that his reflection wants nothing to do with him xD He's discovered that his plant is a cool place to rest in... and ontop of the heater xD
