My Betta flared today

My Betta decided it was ok to flare up at me as soon as I walked into the room today. Obviously you can see the relationship I have with my betta...he loves me though! Lol. So I have been training him how to flare on command. Now he flares at the sight of a pen tip (not just a mirror for once lol).

My betta, Ciel, has never flared at a mirror, but when I walk in and take a look at him he likes to flare at him. Most of the time it's not even a full flare. The other day I walked in and looked at him. He swam around his plant turned to face me and gave me a big flare. I have never seen him flare that much before and haven't seen him do it again ether. Since Ciel doesn't flare at mirrors I don't think I could teach him to flare on command, but I have been trying to teach him to swim through a hoop.

I just tried to get my Betta Bert to flare at a mirror, and he wouldn't.. So I put it down and was looking at him and he flared at me for the first time! :D
