Bettas & flaring

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Out of curiosity, is it unusual for a male betta to never flare his gills or tail?

I've had this betta for approx 12 months. He's doubled in size and fin length since I got him but I've never seen him flare.

This is him when I got him.


This is him a couple of months ago.


Is it unusual to not flare? My other Bettas flare whenever I get close to their tank. This one never has.
