Flaring?

So this morning as soon as I got up I turned on the light in my betta tank to check on him. Yes he was fine but he starting flaring at me for no reason! So my question is, do bettas flare for no reason or if they are mad? My CT is obsessed with the heater because I guess he can see his reflection or something because he is always hanging around it and I will see him flare every once in a while! Its pretty cute! He is the flaring type! lol! Thanks guys!

Could have been a number of factors. The light in the room could have been causing an unusual shadow. He could have perceived you as a threat, etc

I'm not sure bettas have the capabilities to be angry. He's just defending his territory.

That or he was flirting with you

My betta, Tobi, always used to flare at EVERYBODY! It was crazy! Tobi was my first betta, so I looked up at him to check on him and he flared at me, and I thought he was sick, and I thought his lungs were coming out! I screamed because I was so scared! Then I learned it was natural. Bettas seems to like to do that. But, when Tobi started doing that, he died a few weeks later... But, that might just be Tobi.

My General Tso flares at me all the time. It's part of his charm. ;)
