Betta won't stop flaring!

Welp, Ghost just noticed his reflection for the first time and he keeps flaring, I'm not sure if this is normal but he won't move away from the spot he sees himself at.

How do I stop this? I have wallpaper all around the front of the tank so I don't see how he can even see himself.

Maybe it's the wallpaper he's flaring at?

He's flaring because he thinks there is another male. You can try distracting him with your finger or a pencil, but he will get tired eventually.

Ah yes. He finally stopped. >.< Little macho man is probably trying to attract a 'female' since he has such a large bubble nest and now he's even fighting off himself ;P

Aaand he's back at it. Tried using my finger and his net but.. >_<

I hope he gets tired, I don't want this to cause him stress.

Food might work. Or moving some decor around to where he's flaring at.

I just gave him one pellet, happily went back to flaring after eating it.

Try lots of decor, or putting your hand on that spot of the tank to scare him.
