-Uncle flares at my finger and his reflection... well, he tries to kill his reflecion really.
-Leliia flares at her reflection in a mirror.
-Mali has yet to flare at anything >> (I think she's too sweet, like Jade).
-Jade flared at Revenant once when I had the two in the same tank (mind, Revenant was in a cup-thing until I was done fussing over his new home) but other than that, Jade's cool with everyone. He won't ever flare at his reflection.
-Eli's half-blind, so when I put a mirror in front of him, he stares for a good two minutes before he slowly unfurls his gills and RALJFBJFBASFSFLAAARE.
-And Revenant has flared at Jade once when Jade flared at him. (But hey, he may do something crazy, I've only had him for 3 days.)

All sounds basically ordinary right?

Well, way back when I had Gyarados, I remember he used to flare like CRAZY at my stuffed Pokemon plushies I had sitting by his hexagon tank.
It's like he was challenging Pikachu to a Pokemon battle.
Bad idea, Gyarados... LOL

You know what they say...
If at first you don't succeed, try try again.

And again, and again, and again... xD

I should be more like that snail. Just keep trying. Now I have to come up with a name for it [him/her/shim] for remembrance.

I once placed the food container right next to my fish Cleo's tank without thinking it was going to mess with him. After a little while I kept hearing this.."tink....tink....tink..." and I was like what the heck is that fish doing?? I walked back into the kitchen and he was trying to get through the glass to get the fish on the package. I felt kinda bad so I moved it.
