My betta is in a 2.5 gallon tank and used to sit in around in a vase before I upgraded but ever since he's been in the 2.5 gallon tank when I walk passed or look at him he starts flaring up and goes crazy and I have no idea why

Thats what a happy Betta looks like If he only does it when you're near, it's him feeling frisky and healthy, now that he has a little territory.

Now, If you notice he does it pretty constantly, even when you are not walking past, he might see a reflection of himself and be wearing himself out trying to chase off that interloper...but mine flares when he feels/sees me walk past...I figure he's trying to bully me, begging for food

I have sympathy for chain pet store employees, because I've been one: it is hard to try to explain why you can't put 2 koi in a 10 gal to one customer, then turn around and have a fish expert lecture you for 10 minutes for not being able to sex a particular cichlid....for minimum wage

I have a betta in a 2.5, with an amazon sword to keep him company, and he does the same thing. He likes to sleep in the swords leaves.
