I tried moving around his objects and still no luck. This happened ever since he made his first bubblenest. o.O I guess he's just more territorial maybe?

And thanks for the advice vaygirl and amour, I actually have some paper for scrap booking with designs on it so maybe that'll work nicer?

You're welcome. Yeah he might be very territorial. The flaring isn't so bad but what can happen over time (this is what I read at bettysplendens) is that they 'blow' their tail. It looks kinda like a flag that got caught in a high wind, all tatters and strings hanging.

That's what happens to Tango's tail and why I put a background up. Whiskey flares all day too but he doesn't blow his tail. Maybe because Tango's a veiltail it affects him more. I dunno.

Try different things. See what works best for him.

Yah that's what I'm going to do cause he's getting rediculous now. He flares and when he notices I'm staring he stops swims up to me and swims like he wants food lol. He even flared at me when I was looking at his bubble nest, so I gave him the "look" and he stopped lol. and than proceeded to beg for food. lol
He swims up and down and opens and closes his mouth when he wants pellets. It's cute...

But thanks for all the advice guys! I really appreciate it.
