I have a question, i have a 3 and a half month old baby betta who is alittle over 2 inches. (Mars is a boy) when will he start to flare? and if he cant, do i have to teach him or is it a natural instinct?

thanks in advance

When you measure a Betta or any fish except Angelfish, you do not include their tails. So in body size only, he's probably just about an inch.

Some fish just don't want to flare and won't ever flare. I have a very passive boy that hates other fish being in his tank but won't flare at them, he'll chase and bite but never flare. I've showed him other males and females and won't flare for either. So you could just have a boy that doesn't want to flare.

Have you tried holding a mirror up to him?

Mars is super friendly and loves whenever i come over and say hi. I tried the mirror trick about a month ago and he was more curious on me than the mirror. hes basicly curious about anything. I just tried it! i cant believe it worked! he is the most beautiful betta ever!!! hes spreading out his fins like a true betta!thanks alot!

Well spreading fins isn't fully flaring, if he's fully flaring you'll see his beard as well that pops out from under his chin.

Good for you :) I have to hold myself together. But I do consider babies abused fish as they are too young to be sold in a pet store. I will accept any babies as rescues...but I might end up with 300 tanks lol
