Well it seems that today Kojin has discovered how to flare, previously he only partially extended his fins but today I saw full Flaring with his Mouth, Gills and Fins all fully extended. Here is the list of items that he has Flared at so far today;

His Reflection (I assume - can't see what else it could be apart from a white wall)
My Finger - Usually he follows this, now he flares up and down
My Coffee Cup placed next to his tank - now moved
His Pot of Food placed next to tank - now in drawers out of sight
The Moss Ball - Not a lot I can do about this, he has charged it a couple of times
His Drilled Rock - He floats near the Holes and Flares
The Gravel has received it's fair share of Flares so far this afternoon.
He has Flared at his food before and after eating it (both Pellets and Bloodworms)
He Flared when he heard my phone ring
He has also been flaring at the Sagittaria that's planted on tank bottom

I hope that this means that he is developing his personality and maturing and not the fact that he has decided that today he is ultra stressed. Interestingly he has not flared at either the Snails or the Cory's in the same tank. I will monitor this behaviour and also looking at bringing something into the middle "tier" of the tank as it maybe a little bare after the latest reshuffle.
