Jewel won't flare, neither did DB, who was a male. I even held a cosmetic mirror against each of their tanks. Is it obvious to see betas flare? When I went to the store to buy them, they weren't reacting to each other, they could see each other when they were still at the store.
Some betas bite, Jewel hasn't even attempted to bite me, or anyone else who had their hand in her tank. I guess she's a lover, not a biter...hehehe

Hey! I've taught my boy Dovahkiin something similar. He blows kisses as well! Anyways, I wanted to say that he kisses my finger when I put it in the water. It's so cute. :3 Also, he knows how to wave. If I wave with one hand he'll flap both pectoral fins and then clamp one down against his body, but keep flapping the other. These bettas are so darn cute!!!

Flaring is obvious with bettas. Their gill cover will come forward and the males will have a small "beard" that will slide out and appear under their chins when full on flaring. All of their fins will be completely erect as well. There is an attentive flare that includes the fins being erect, but the gill flaps don't lift.

My betta will follow your movement across his tank. Either your body or a finger. He will do free willy stunts for food and leap at your fingers. He's never bitten anyone, he's a good boy and prefers hand feeding to off the surface of the water.

I think I might try the hoops. He might have fun with that. Especially if I involve his food.
