Frodo flares at the box of his filter because it's black and outside of the tank so it makes his reflection more visible when he swims by it.

Very odd that Sparkle didn't go into major flare-mode at dark objects (seeing his reflection?) for the first month or so. Guess he is just being silly. At least he is getting some "flaring" excercise.

The weird thing is, he doesn't really even flare at the other betta and when he saw my dark blue sweatshirt he fully flared which I've never seen him do. It amused me to see him do this and think that I'm a threat haha

When I first got Stu, I was clicking a purple pen around, when I noticed he was going physco flaring. I put the pen away and he stopped flaring. Brang it back out a few days later, I swear he was going to kill me.

I had a betta that flared at some Christmas earrings I have. They were red. Lol
That is soooo funny ... Maybe he/she thought they were his/her Christmas present and wanted some new tank decorations instead

He became bored with me now haha. But he does constantly watch me and so does Jack Skellington. They have the weirdest personalities I swear! But he gets upset when my fingers are in the water
