Is the betta capable of seeing other tanks or is there a dark surface behind the glass so he sees a reflection? I notice mine lounges around and when I come into view he'll spring and pace back and forth up kinda like a dog when you come home.

he can see the tv and couch, but its a semi-reflective interior, once we get home, he goes nuts! its crazy, never seen a betta move around that much, should he have a tank-mate to help him not get to freaky?

You might want to increase the tanksize, but tankmates may help. I find that my fish don't socialize with the bettas too much and they still just lie around and when I come into view or whatever, they get up and make a show. :)

I agree. Tankmates MAY help but generally bettas aren't social fish. Always though there are exceptions. If you add some tankmates choose them carefully however and DEF increase the tank size before adding more fish.

Good luck to you. :)
