Betta Flaring

My aquarium has lights but until now I haven't turned them on. Ever since I did my betta has been flaring at everything. He has a tendency to go up to the glass and start flaring. It is almost constant how much he does it. What should I do?

Hi minkymink he should stop flaring so much when he gets used to seeing the reflection my betta did the same thing for awhile until he got used to seeing his reflection but will sometimes still flare on the side he makes his bubble nest on.

Yeah my first betta did that when I upgraded him to a 10 gallon tank, but he stopped within 2 days. For me he calmed down progessively

try putting a bit more ambient light in the room around him. if there's more or less equal lighting outside the tank as inside, his reflection will kinda disappear. think of looking out a window at night. if the room is lit up, you see nothing but your reflection, but if the room is as dark as outside, you see through clearly.
