You can show them a mirror and give them a treat when they flare.

I would let them flare at their reflection and give them some bloodworms when they flare. That's what Choclatebetta said. I have to give him credit.

I didn't need to use a mirror xD he decided he liked to flare at (black) objects and now he gets a pellet when he flares at my pen xD

Though I'm sure that if you used the mirror to encourage flaring, then show him the pen and give a pellet, he would probably start flaring at a pen (or any object you chose). Gotta love Skinner's conditioning theory xD

Animals learn best from bribes. They should be poloticians.
