Betta Reflection

I just dropped my Betta into a new tank today but he's constantly going insane and attacking the glass. Will he get bored and stop doing this after a while?/?!

Have you tried changing the lighting how it hits the tank?

Or if that isn't a possibility, how about adding a piece or paper to a couple of sides of the tank to see if that makes the reflection go away?

Try an aquarium background. You can buy one or make one.

If his tank is in a dark area of your house, and there is a light on directly over his tank, it can make his reflection visible to him. Move him to a well lit area of the house or turn other lights on around his tank as well as the ones above it to get his reflection to disappear.
