I usually hold a mirror up to my betta, just not for more than a few minutes. There are special mirrors for this too, I think. If you want to teach him to flare on command, this is a helpful website. Good luck! ( another user with more experience might be able to help you out more)


Hi guys, you've probably noticed I'm not on as much. The reason for that is the fact that I'm so much busier than I was last year. Also, I'm in the school play for once. (Squee!) So, I probably will be popping around everyone once in while anyway. But, until then- toodles!

Some bettas will also flare at things pressed up against the glass like the ends of pens and pencils. If you move it slowly across the glass, most males will usually come over to investigate and may have a bit of a flare.
