I got my new little fish on Friday, and she (or he, but that's another debate altogether) has been hanging out around her heater a lot since I got her. I've just now realized that my heater has a very reflective surface on the sides. She flares a lot when sees her reflection
I hesitate to get rid of the heater because it's actually a really good heater (Cascade 7-watt), but I don't want to have her freaking out about this constantly. She's a very happy, friendly, and curious fish, but I'm worried about this in the long run.
What can I do to solve this problem? Can I put blinders up around it? Or change my light source? Something? Anything?
