saved a crowntail from wallmart poo-bucket

saw him in the nastiest cup of water looked bad in the cup so i got him a one gallon triangle he seems very happy now il probably upgrade to a 5 but i needed something bigger than the cup he was in ..only problem with this triangle(actualy has 5 side but two are real small)as soon as i put him in he kept flaring..is he seeing his refletion in the corners orf the tank?the front parts the point and he keeps flaring at it..or is this just him adjusting to the tank..anyways heres a few before and afters...

All you have to do is turn of the light... it causes the reflection on the tank wall.

You can use a heating pad to warm the tank. I heard they work well.
The jury is still out on whether or not constant flaring is harmful. Just make sure he does not seem too stressed out by it.

As long as the heating pad does not get too hot it should be fine. :)
Just make sure you test the temp often while adjusting it because most heating pads you cannot set them to a certain temp.
And just keep the light on like 10-12 hours in the day and turn it off at night. I turn my fish tank lights on at 9-10am and turn them off at 10pm.
