Betta Constantly Flaring after Water Change/Bowl Cleaning

Hey everyone!

My roommates' betta fish has been swimming around his 1 gallon bowl minding his own business for the past couple of days, but last night she cleaned the bowl and changed the water. I've noticed this morning when I got up, he was constantly flaring at himself, and is still doing so 2 1/2 hours after I left for class. What can be done to keep him from getting overly stressed?

Flaring at himself in the reflection? try turning on or off the lights in the room so that he can't see his reflection.
