This is my very firsy betta and I have done an enormous amout of research concerning Bettas, fishtanks, planted tanks ect, but I can't help being such a worried betta mom!
I got him from Aquabid, he arrived Wednesday and I had a 2g AGA tank ready, temp 78, IAL leaf, silk plants, I put him in after acclimating him and he seems very happy, but I have noticed that he flares a LOT at the back wall of the tank...He'll be just swimming along, them turn to the back wall rush over there and start flaring at it, does he see his reflection? I've read that you're not supposed to expose them to a mirror or another betta nearby because they might get overly stressed?
What do you think? Am I overreacting?
Here is a picture of the pretty boy flaring
