My sassy female tiffy flares at anything red (she is a red betta). If I put anything on her glass tank, she will go into full flare telling intruding object that she is the boss of the tank well showing off how big she is. Jaw will only flare at tiffy.

Depression is just like a broken bone, they both need medical attention and it's nothing to be ashamed of. Try to write at least ten healthy and positive things that are going on in your life. You will be amazed by how effective this is.

All my betta's act up when someone is around their tanks. They think their being fed EVERY TIME someone is near the tank.

my fish flares at everything, my goldfish clover, thermometer, snails, African dwarf frog, my finger, me, any person in the room, my bed, blankets, my desk, himself, the fish across from him, my phone case, pens, pencils, shoes, shirts, pants, socks, necklaces, trees from outside, and houses. And many other things.

8 female bettas and 12 male bettas

Your betta wants all to fear him and know his the boss of his tank.

^LMAO!

Dangerous flares at the dark, he must want any nighttime intruder to know who's boss. Oscar will flex his gill covers at the food bottle or when I startle him. He'll also flare-bomb me, He'll be in the back, and rush up to the front flaring if I'm there. It's so cute!

I have discovered Omicron flares when presented with a camera - I think he sees his reflection in the lens. Or he doesn't like the green indicator light.

So small, very fish , my fish and animal obsession blog.

Swim in peace Omicron, the original king of the aquarium castle.
Swim in peace Lazuli, the good prince.

Ghost flares at me whenever I approach his tank for the first time that day. It's his adorable way of saying hi.

Julius and Ray-Ray will randomly have flare-offs.
And Angel flares at Jay all the time, but he usually ignores him. Lately though, he'll occasionally flare back. Which is cool, because I haven't seem him flare in a long time. He's laidback. (LAZY!!! Lol )

My new boy, Polydeuces, is still adjusting to life with me, I guess. I leave him alone for the most part, but I've been trying to familarize him with me and my index finger, and today he approached it, partially flared, and darted away a couple times, lol. He also seems very curious about the long part of this new plant I got for his tank-- I guess it looks like a bug or something? but I've caught him lunging and flaring at it, it's super cute (I'll try to catch him in action sometime, but he'a camera shy).

Yesterday, Omicron flared quite a bit when presented with a pencil. He didn't care about pens, though.

He has this thing where whenever I have the aquarium background attached, he goes to the back corners and flares at himself. From what I can see when I move around the aquarium, the shiny aquarium background paper can make a mirror when you look at it at the right angle.
