He's also darting around the outside of his tank and flaring a lot. I think he can see his reflection, and I was hoping it wouldn't bother him much, but is he going to exhaust himself trying to challenge the "other betta"?

A lighted tank in a dark room causes reflection. See what you can do to light the room. Anyway, he'll outgrow it. Also, more plants.

Some Betta like bubbles; some don't; some don't care. They don't need it.

+1 to everything Hallyx has advised.

I have used Seachem Stability to cycle two five gallons, one 20 gallon and one 2.5 gallon with success.

Good luck. You'll have a lot of fun with your Betta and any tankmates you might choose.

Okay, I stuck a tank background paper to the side he was flaring at and adjusted the lights in my room and he's finally calmed down. I've added a couple more plants and a castle, too. However, now he's not eating his pellets. He might just be stressed from all the stuff moving around, but if he doesn't eat tomorrow, I'll probably try a different variety.

Omega One Betta and New Life Spectrum (1.0mm) are the most recommended pellets around here. I like OO because they float. Many keepers like NLS because they have garlic (yum).
