Should I take the background off her tank?

Ever since I put the black background on Lolas tank she swims nonstop back and forth chaseing her reflection. I thought she would stop after awhile but she just keeps going and going like the energizer bunny LOL. It may be a silly thing to worry about but I worry that since shes not eating and getting all this exercise it could be bad for her.

Lol!
I don't have a background, but I always find Aigis swimming like crazy. She especially loves her reflection.

Anyway, bettas can last quite a long time without food, so I wouldn't be too worried about her.

My little Lily has a love affair with her reflection too, ever since I took her "boyfriend" away (he used to be in a tank next to the sorority) she's always swam that wall of the tank watching her reflection.. Today I gave her a new boyfriend temporarily at least, so she's happily flirting with him through the glass.. she's my boy-crazy girl.. the rest of them mostly ignore any males I put next to the tank, and Lily chases them off if they get near anyway.
