Unhappy Halfmoon wont flare..boooooo =[

My halfmoon Matthew has only flared ONCE! However my VT Peter flares all the time lol I am sorry, but flaring just cracks me up. He flares his heart out to at Matthew and Matthew just sits their and does not flare back or anything boooo How do i get Matthew to flare?? If another betta flaring at him and his own reflection does not get him to flare, what will??

My betta almost never flares either. Not at a mirror, nor at another betta. Every once in a blue moon I catch him flaring at his own reflection in the evening, when the room lights are off but his tank light is on. It's just my opinion that flaring is a "stressful" behavior and I like that my guy is mellow. When we put up our dukes for a fight our hearts get racing, I wonder if it's the same for fish??

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

wait flaring actually stresses the fish? I have been told it is good to get the betta to flare to keep him entertained, etc... hence the purpose of a mirror or being able to see another betta right??
