Flares for hours at his reflection

My betta Norbert flares at his reflection for hours if I don't put a book to cover the side of the tank. How can I stop it? I am trying to cure him of tears in his caudal but he keeps ripping them open. :(

Maybe try some tall silk plants on the side of the tank he sees himself in.

My bettas did the same thing the first few days when I put them into their tanks, eventually they calmed down and now they just chill out planning their diabolical plans to take over humanity.
