thank you so much on the compliments all! I went ahead and removed the bamboo, replacing it with Anubias this weekend. It must be his own reflection then but it's interesting that it can't be the same kind of reflection he sees like when looking in a mirror because then he flares like crazy and doesn't only pace back and forth....

Because 86F was too warm in my opinion and now that the room temps in California are still high I will just leave it room temperature at 76-80F and turn on the heater when it gets cold outside.

Eugene and your tank are both gorgeous. Sometimes bettas take a while to get acclimated to a new home. Imagine living your whole life in a very small space and then being moved to the equivalent of a penthouse :)

As for a heater, you can get a 25w submersable and set it to 80 and you won't have to worry about it again.

Yep! Heaters that you can adjust turn themselves off when the water temperature is warm enough. (: So if it drops to 80, it'll turn on, but if it rises then it shuts off.
