what happens when you hold a mirror up to a betta?

is it the same for all bettas? will more happier bettas react differently?

My guy flares a little, but the other day a fly landed on the outside of his tank and he tried attacking it! He is VERY agressive, even going after me or my baster when I clean his tank. It cracks me up every time!

When I put a mirror in front of my betta, he doesn't do anything.

Do you have a heater in your tank? Bettas need to be kept at 78-82 degrees, any lower and they start to slow down and become inactive.
