plez dont buy this its teizing your bata fish. and my buddys sons bata tryed to kill it cuz he was thinking it was a bata fish. he died cuz he kep raming it to the thing. if you love your bata you will NOT BUY THIS!!!!
The edges on this are too sharp, so I don't use this item.
Don't buy this. It won't make your betta "exercise", it'll just scare the heck out of them. It may look funny to you, and you can maybe use a mirror occasionally, having this constantly on the side of the tank will be terrifying for your fish.
Don't Even Think About It
This is a horrible product for your betta. Mirrors mimic the idea of having another betta in the tank and does nothing but stress them out. They can get stressed to the point of death.
Read the Instructions
I see a lot of people complaining about how this is a bad thing to leave in the tank with your betta. Reading the instructions will save your fish, folks. A five minute, supervised session or less is good to get your betta excited and stretching his fins and gills, and replicating encounters with other males he'd be guaranteed to have in the wild. After the five minutes the mirror needs to be taken out; even says it on the item itself. In the wild bettas don't usually have to fight. The males will flare at each other and maybe a scuffle will occur, but the loser will almost always retreat before getting any injuries. In a tank this can't happen because of the confined space- these animals live in large swamps in the wild.
