He's actually doing great! He isn't as bad about flaring constantly anymore. I added some more plants and got him another tank buddy. The pleco is still obsessing over the stupid filter...he just sits back behind it and switches position occasionally...it's the weirdest thing! Anyways, Dovahkiin is doing great. He's sleepy right now. He seems to be really tired about the same time every night, but during the day he swims up to the front of the tank and turns sideways and just watched me while I talk to him. If I call his name he'll flare up for like a second after we make eye contact. He's so cute!!!! =D

Hahahaha. Thanks! I feel like a bad mommy, though. I've been misspelling his name all over the forum. -1 point for me. </3

My Betta Merlin did this too when I first put him in his tank; I put some white paper on the outside, but nothing seemed to work. I asked for help and here is the best reply I got:

I made sure he was eating enough and after a few days he calmed down. yesterday I was able to take the paper off, and when I did he had no reaction.

Oh that's nice!!! Dovahkiin got over his funky reflection thing. I just get so worried because I want to make sure I'm doing this whole mommy thing right. :P

Hahahahaha. That's hilarious. Dovahkiin stopped flaring as much now that he's used to his home. Now sure if I should be bummed or not. No more cool flaring pictures for me I guess. Hah.
