Exclamation He won't stop flaring!!!

Hello guys, I just moved Merlin to a new tank today. however, he sees his reflection in the walls and won't stop flaring! He's been flaring all day, and I'm worried He'll wear himself out. I taped lined paper onto the outside of the walls, but it's not working. :/ Any tips? I don't have another tank to put him in right now, so I won't be able to move him till I can buy another kritter keeper.
thank you, ~Saphira :)

Gus did the EXACT same thing when I moved him to his new tank. It got better with time and by day 3 or so he was like Meah, whatever. So don't worry. Just make sure he eats enough to compensate for all the energy he is burning being macho.

He's eating like normal. whenever my fishies aren't eating, I toss in some live food, that always seems to work. :)

Gus actually ate a bit more than normal during that time. I chalked it up to him burning off so many calories chasing himself around his tank
