Is flaring good for the Betta?

== == Flaring is healthy for your betta, not only

mentally but as well as physically (exercise) which can increase

their immune system. However, too much flaring is

unhealthy as it stresses him out (flaring is a sign of

your betta trying to intimidate its rival) and may lead to torn

fins. So I recommend maybe a few times a week for no longer than

2-3 minutes.

Whenever I put a mirror up to my Betas bowl and let him do his

thing he always seemed to be in a good mood afterward so I'll say

yes. Just do it every so often, not all the time.
