Tank mate? Water parameters.
My betta is in a community tank, and only flares when someone wanders into his "home"

If you can't afford 25$ for a simply liquid test kit then you should consider finding another hobby. :/

Sorry about your job. Hopefully, you find another soon. Bettas will flare at their reflections sometimes. So, maybe he is seeing himself in the glass. I have also heard of some who flare at people. Maybe you make him feel territorial. But, as long as isn't in crazy excess, it isn't bad for him.

Hope all works out for your Betta. It's pretty important to get yourself a test kit.

Did you cycle your tank before adding him?

How often do you change your water?

BTW, since you can't afford a test kit right now, most fish stores will test your water for free. You can do that until you are able to get a test kit. If you take your water somewhere to be tested, make sure they use a liquid kit, not test strips. Test strips are not accurate.
