so he never flared this much before? Well then something about that filter is making him mad or making him feel territorial or something i dunno. But flaring is not always bad =]

Does he have a light? You can try turning it off for a bit if he does. It cuts down on reflections. Tango contiously flares in one corner all day where he can see himself. I had the white side of a greeting card taped to that side for a while and it helped. It was harder for him to see himself against the white.

I think as long as he doesn't seem to be in distress or pain, it should work itself out. Is it his beard? The part that he pushes out when he flares? I've heard of them getting stuck before but I've never experienced it myself.
