Usually I just pick one out and set them next to another Betta. That usually gets them to flare better than a mirror.

I agree! And I've noticed they flare quicker if you hold them next to one of their same color or a female.
Problem with LPS is that the fish can already see eachother so it's no novelty when you hold them close. It's better to go on shipment day or the day after,it's when you'll see the fish most active.
Ask someone at the store (or call like I did) when they get their bettas, it's usually one specific day a week.
I go almost every Friday to Petco to see the new fishies because they arrive on Thursday.

Sometimes walmart gets them, check the females out too I found my male in my avatar in for 2 bucks because they thought he was a girl!!! He was a great find. Now he has a little baby that I think will turn out just like him

11 females
10 males

Crown tails are really sensitive and sometimes their tail melts. Just to say. I love HM!
