Can I keep in the tank all time? Or is that unhealthy?
Answer by ChewyMay 15, 2018
This mirror can be used daily, but shouldn't be in the tank 100% of the time.

Will it take up to much room in a 2 gallon round bowl? Thank You
Answer by ChewyOct 09, 2017
This Mirror has dimensions of 7 x 4.5 x 1.25 inches and is recommended for use in tanks larger than 1 gallon in size.

Is there a chance this could stress the fish out?
Answer by ChewyDec 27, 2018
This exercise mirror can stress your betta if left inside their home for more than 5 minutes at a time, one or twice per day.

hello! i have two black moore goldfish living in a 30 gallon tank. i was wondering if this was suitable for them? i wanted something for them to play with. if not, i would love to know something else they might enjoy.
Answer by ChewySep 26, 2019
The Betta Exercise mirror can be used with a goldfish but it will not get the same result as when used with a Betta. Goldfish are community fish and can be housed together. A Betta on the other hand is solitary and will fight with other fish it sees. The mirror shows them another fish which causes them to flare up and display.

Lifted my betta's spirits

I was a little skeptical about this at first because most people who have seen a betta or owned one, knows if you hold a mirror up to them they will display, but so what? I've always thought it was just a parlor trick that mostly upset the fish but what I didn't think about was that it would be the equivalent of cardio-vascular exercise to a human. My betta had gotten kind of listless and spent a lot of time sitting on the bottom of the tank so I got this for him to try. It's going to sound strange perhaps, but it seemed to give him a renewed purpose! He is now much more active than he was and I've paired the 5 minute or less daily session with a treat food reward ("You scared him away again! Great job!"). I may be anthropomorphizing here but I think that the very occasional presence of this "foe" has given him something to defend and "care" about. At least that's how I explain it to myself. In any case, if you use this for like 5 minutes or less per day as the instructions recommend, it will be a beneficial time for your betta friend and you may just look forward to it as well!

They love it

It works... Maybe a little too well lol. Just be careful with the after affects. My dominate female betta gets easily aggitated for awhile from using this and takes it out on others [mainly other bettas or male fancy tail guppies]. I only put it in the tank every other 2 days or more depending on the situation.

Works pretty well

Works pretty well, but I think my betta gets a little too crazy with it

FOUGHT IT!!!!

I dont know who thought this was a good idea but all it does is cause my betta to want to fight the mirror and stress him out he hated it!!!

Causes stress

This is the worst idea for a product. Anyone that knows betta basics knows that they are fighters. They have excellent vision, are easily stressed and are definitely aggressive. I put one betta tank next to another (about 6” apart) and had to put a visual divider between the tanks to block their vision because one of them was obsessed with trying to attack the other, it caused both of them a lot of unnecessary stress. Bettas don’t know what they look like and will see their reflection as another fish and will innately feel threatened (hence why they react). They aren’t “exercising” they’re trying to fight their reflection. As they will never come on contact with the fish in the mirror this will cause extreme stress, loss of color and possible illness. Don’t fall for this cheap marketing trick.

Cool activity

Such a cool little gadget. It’s nice to do things that can keep your fish happy, entertained and busy!

Fish mirror ball toy

This toy scared my fish! He would not go near it or play at all. Cannot use it.

please don't get this.

I know that it might be cool to see your betta "wagging it's fins" and "practicing natural territorial behaviours" but please just don't get this. No matter how long you leave it in for, it will stress out your betta! If a random person just showed up in your house and just stood there looking at you, even if it was for five minutes, wouldn't you freak out?? I know I would. These kinds of 'toys' aren't good for your male betta. If you plan to put your betta in a community tank after using this 'toy,' it might be hard to avoid fish fights due to their stress from the toy but also their mindset of "i have to be prepared at all times to protect myself!"
