Out of curiosity, I got a Hagen background from Petsmart to try it. it has blue water and rocks on 1side and some greens on the other side. My betta flared non-stop for a while. When I removed it and used the grey IKEA placemat that has silver light grey slate patterns on it as the background, he was fine. I think the lighter ones do not cause anxiety or aggression.

ive tried glossy white, flat white, glossy black, flat black, blue, planted tank background, none have worked so far :( maybe it has something to do with the lighting as well i notice he tends to flare more if just the tank light is on at night and the room as totally dark.....
