Question Betta Flaring at background

So, I just put a new background on the back of my tank and Sven is flaring repeatedly at it! is it just cus it's new? Should I leave it on and see if he calms down? or should I remove it?

hmmm is he flaring at it constantly? Does it seem like he is being stressed out by it.

He seems curious about it, but he goes over to it... looks at it... FLARE... moves a lil bit to the side to look at another section of it... FLARE.... moves down to the bottom of it... FLARE... maybe he's just excited to see this?

He is probably just making his territory. As long as it does not stress him out it should be fine.

One of mine did this for a couple days when I gave him a new background. There was a particular plant in the picture that he flared at. After a couple days he stopped. Guess he figured out it wasn't another fish. :D
