So, my other beta didnt make it..

Frostbite kept getting fin rot and eventually he lost the battle. I mourned and I got an new fish. His name is King Drago (he is a Dragonscale Crowntail), but he keeps flareing his gills out at me, or anyone else that walks by for that matter. Sometimes he just does it to do it. Is this a bad thing that its constant or should I just let him carry on and do what he is gonna do or what?

I had a fish who did the same, and he turned out fine. He was actually a dragon CT, too! He still flares at anything and everything that comes near his tank, but once he's sure that it's not a threat he stops.

Goblin always flares when we walk by his tank, it's pretty normal.
When I move to the dorms and he's in the same room as me he flares when I come in and then gets over it. :)

Same! Mine used to flare all the time when I first got him. Like, excessively. He's calmed down a ton over time . Now he's a little push over and had to be taken out of his community tank because he can't stand up to a couple of platys
