Betta Flaring A Lot.

My betta recently tore his fin and caught very early signs of fin rot. As soon as I saw him in his condition, I put him in a small bowl away from the other fish so he couldn't catch anything else incase they had something. Today, I reintroduced him into his regular tank, and he started flaring at everything. The shrimp, the tetras and the cories. Is this him trying to regain his territory or has his time alone made him aggressive.

I had him in a small glass bowl that I some how managed to make it float. I then left him for a while to get used to any temperature difference. Then, I slowly tipped the bowl to let the water get into his bowl and then after slowly adding water to his bowl, I let his bowl sink and he swam out. He was resting on the plants after a good swim and started to flare.

Is he attacking or just flaring? He is a boy, so it's not unexpected for him to flare at things. As long as he isn't attacking anything in the tank I wouldn't worry.
