I have replaced the incandescent light with fluorescent one and when it is on and it is considerably darker in the room he is often near one of the sides flared. The aquarium is acrylic and it doesn't happen during the day. Is there anything i can do about this?
Mine did this on a regular basis. He is in a critter keeper now, so he doesn't have a direct light in his tank. I just have a lamp over it. But in his former tank, he did flare if I left his light on and the room light off. I'm sure it's because he saw himself clearly.
