My betta resides in my bedroom. During the day, I keep the curtains open so he has some natural light. However, when I turn on his tank light, the room is still dark enough that he can see his reflection and flares at it.
I've been keeping the tank light off because I don't want to stress him out. I'd like to be able to have it on...I'm eventually going to get some live plants, too.
So, I thought that maybe getting some of that stick on background might do the trick, but it would only cover 1-3 sides of the tank...what about the front? Or, I could set up a small lamp near his tank to give more light.
I'd love to hear what others have done.
(Hopefully someday soon I'll stop asking questions and be able to help others with theirs! )
