Why is Fishie flaring at EVERYTHING?

OMG, Fishie has been swimming around his tanks for the past 2 hours and flaring at everything. His fins are even flaring. Up until today, when he flared it would only be his face, but now it's his fins too (confirmed now he's a halfmoon. lol). But I don't know why he keeps flaring. I don't know if maybe he's seeing his reflection? He's in his new tank with a brighter light. Is he stressing out while doing this? Is it bad for him?
I just turned off the light in his tank and he seems to have calmed down a bit...

Mine seems to go through phases of flaring at things... I usually notice that's when he has a bubble nest built. Has Fishie made a bubble nest recently? He could just be extra protecting his territory!

No bubble nest. I just put him into his new tank last night and he hasn't made one yet.

Oh he probably is still be getting used to his tank then! He may be flaring just to "stake out" his territory. :)
