It is pretty important that any temp changes be done slowly. If you are doing room temp I would just set out a gallon jug of the water overnight or at least a half day before your changes to make sure it is the same temp.
Other then that it sounds like a normal betta. They swim around and they do sleep, you can tell because the will be still but when you come over they look up like "oh, hello?". The flaring is a great sign I think-a sassy betta is usually a happy one
That's good to hear about the sassyness! The previous betta I had, Webster, he was so friendly. Would pretend he was a whale too.
I do let the water sit out overnight so room temp is not an issue. I'm just worried for when I get him out of the tiny bowl and into a 10 g! The heater will be a bit of an issue at first.
