How to reduce betta reflection in tank?

My betta Moe is a very fiesty boy. He spends all day fighting his reflection on the sides of his tank. He doesn't fully fare but he spreads out and darts back and forth and even at the reflection sometimes. He is in a 1.5 gallon plastic tank made by Tetra. I don't have a light on his tank because I've notice he doesn't like bright lights. He fights his reflection during the middle of the day when there is only natural light in the room and at night when I have the overhead light in my room turned on. Is there any way I can reduce his reflection? Or is it the type of tank?

use a white background. I've used just plain white paper before.

Yup, really anything as a background will help. I use towels, some people use construction paper and trash bags. It's not a necessity to be white either (I think it might be a more benificial color, but nt necessary)

You can also get dimmer lights to help.

There's never going to be a way for you to be able to cut back a bettas reflection 100% but there are definitely ways to help a bit
