My boy won't flare for anything, even when he's being aggressive. My girlfriend's fish on the other hand will flare at ... well anything. And when there isn't anything to flare at he seems to make up things to 'fight'.

He's calmed down a little bit though c:

After it got dark in the house last night I still had the tank light on and I think Finnick was flaring at his own reflection in the tank glass. Other than that, I don't know yet!

Hehe... I had to check with a mirror.

Alexander is my only betta who flares. He flares at himself and he loves doing his little betta dance because he always thinks he'll get food =P. He doesn't flare at my finger but he'll chase it and nip. Riley doesn't flare at all...He does chase his reflection around though. Apollo (my "Moms" betta.) does exactly what Riley does but will sometimes flare at himself.

Mine only flares at a mirror. He flared at my finger once and then nipped it, but now when I stick my finger in he rubs on it like a cat. Haha. It's cute.

I'm thinking of trying to teach him to flare, like make him do something right before I feed him. It is kinda hard cause if he delays getting his flakes or worms, the tetras swarm in and take it all.
