Question 1:
I bought a desk lamp to warm the water for my beta which has worked out perfectly; however, I want to allow my beta time to sleep by turning off the light but am afraid that in doing so will drop the temperature of the water since my room gets so cold. I am afraid that drastic temperature changes from day to night will stress my beta so how can I keep the heating lamp on and allow my beta sleep time?

Question 2:
I bought my beta a round medium sized clear glass bowl, put smooth rocks on the bottom as well as decorations. I found that at night when I have the heat lamp on, my beta somehow sees his reflection and gets aggravated. I thought it may be the dark surface I had the bowl on, but even changing the color of the ground underneath did nothing. I don't want my beta to be "up in arms" all the time in fear that it will stress him out too much but I have no idea in how to fix the bowl for him to not see his reflection and in keeping the heat lamp on. For now at night I have just been covering the sides of the bowl with a towel so there is no reflection but I am hoping there is another solution.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read my questions and I hope you can help me :)
