I just purchased a Male Betta a couple days ago.. I've noticed that he can see his reflection in the walls of the tank and he'll flare, is this going to stress him out alot? and he also hasn't been eating. anyone have any advice? Thank you!

Keeping the room lighted whenever the tank light is on will reduce reflections. A dark room reflects a lot.

A couple of 5 minute long flaring sessions per day is good for them both for exercise and attitude.

Sometimes it takes them a week or more to settle in and feel comfortable enough to eat. Keep trying; he'll come around.
