Question Normal Behavior?

My betta keeps looking like he is trying to swim straight out of the tank. Honestly I cant tell if he is hitting the sides hard or just kinda swimming around the edge. But either way, is this normal? Or should I be concerned he is hurting himself or something?

Hard to say from your description. I have one that glass surfs practically all day but he isn't hitting the glass. Can you get a video of him & post it? Its possible he's seeing his reflection & is therefore defending his territory.

That was the temp home, if I'm not mistaken he has been upgraded to a 5g (?) tank.

Okay thanks Shellieca I haven't been paying much attention to everyone as I haven't been here long but anyways in that case I would go with what Shellieca says, try post a video so we can see if he is flaring or something is wrong ;)
