Bettas flare to scare other fish from their territories or to attract a female.

A male betta fish will flare to show off his brightly colored fins to a female. This can cause her to have an interest in him.

They are territorial toward each other.

Simple. Betta fish are territorial. They see movement, and color as a threat. They will do this even to the females until maybe mating season.

It means he hates you. Bettas flare their gills out when they're trying to scare another betta away, or to impress a female with how large he is.

It is usually because the male is mainly the dominant one and is saying: "Watch out, I'm bigger than you and I could kick your butt."

The male Betta splendens is a larger more colourful fish with much larger showier fins than the female. He will also flare up almost immediately when he sees his own image in a mirror. The females do not do this so readily.

No the female betta has to have a male to have babies.

Your betta fish is a female if she has smaller fins than an average male.

If they are not too old and the female is ready, then they will mate.

YES! Betta fish are very aggresive. If you put another fish tank in front of the tank holding the betta fish, the betta will flare. So i wouldn't try putting the betta in the goldfish tank.

The male betta always has longer fins. It is more colorful and prettier. The female betta is not so pretty with dull fins.

When betta fish flare their gills, it usually means that they want to show off; either to other fish, or to their owner. Sometimes, if you scare your betta fish, they will flare their gills at you just to let you know that they aren't afraid of you. if your betta fish flares their gills all of the time, you may just have a very aggressive fish.

Female Betta fish as well as males are known for flaring their gills. The reason is Betta fish are fighting fish. Bettas do this if they feel uncomfortable or feel something (another fish, human, etc.) is coming to close to their habitat. I am the owner if two bettas and although they can put on an angry face they are good pets to that that are fun and last a long time

You can buy a female betta at any pet store that sells betta; the females are the ones with very short fins.

Normally the male betta fish has much longer flowing fins than the female.

it depends i have a male with a female betta, in a 2.5 gallon tank,they get along, i wouldnt risk it, no
