Reflection?

Postby Joxter » Mon Sep 07, 2020 1:42 pm

Recently my 3-month-old baby Joxter has been getting scared or threatened by his reflection. I've already attached a backdrop but occasionally he'll notice it and show his stress marks or wave at it. I'm worried about him, so I'm wondering if anyone knows how to teach him that his reflection isn't harmful?

Where else is he seeing his reflection? On the sides ? If so cover them up and just leave the front open - if you can move the tank so its not getting a reflection

The backdrop covers 2 of the sides of the tank and it's on the outside so his reflection can still be seen a bit. Will he get used to his reflection eventually? In which case can I just let him be or should I stop him?

What are you using for a cover? He may stop just watch him and if he continues then you may need to cover what isnt covered / change what your using / and or move the tank
