Flaring

My betta I just got yesterday likes to flare a lot. All the time I will see him at the side of the aquarium looking around and he puffs up and flares. He flares at the side of the aquarium a lot.

Are you leeping the light in the tank on? If your tank light is on and the room light is not the walls of your tank will act as a mirror which will make him flare nonstop.
Just a warning that this constant flaring might lead to tailbiting. Try turning the tank lights off and just using natural light or turn on the lights in your room.
If you have a dark background in the tank it will contribute to the refection.

I turned the light on his tank off now lets see what happens. Also the stupid water in his tank is cloudy already and I just got him yesterday. Thinking about buying a filter system one that dont bubble much or create a bunch of current

I have never heard that constant flaring leads to tail biting. I never card my bettas (and won't till I show them) and I've never had a tail biter.
