Exclamation Why isn't my betta flaring?

Why isn't my betta flaring? So here's the story:
On the first day I adopted him, he flared at me. And he flared at me for ten days. Then, he didn't flare ever since! Even if I put a mirror in front, he still doesn't flare! HELP!!!

Bettas, Bettas, BETTAS!!!
Enjoy them, while they last...

<<<MY BETTAS!>>>
Cookie --- Orange VT!!!
<<My DEAD Bettas>>
Kirby --- Purple VT!!!
O_O... --- White/Opaque VT!!!
Coconut --- Blue-ish, Red-ish VT!!!
BlueSpash --- Blue, with a hint of turquoise, red, and purple! (VT)

Bettas have personalities. Some are aggressive, others arent. I have two bettas in tanks next to eachother, Apollo and Blade. Blade flares like crazy and Apollo just looks at him like "are you the dude with food?"

He probably got used to you and the other bettas. I had a male and female in a divided tank. They flared at each other all day. Then, they just stopped flaring at all.

I only have 1 betta left, but he's a cool blue marble!
