Do female bettas flare?
Was just wondering. I've never seen it.
YES.. lol... female bettas do flare. I found out when I had added another female in the ten gal w/ divider with my female Precious. I was surprised, since Precious is such a sweetie pie.. welllll... not! lol.. another female got her attention and she didnt like it one bit! lol...
Ooooh, that means that my female is really sweet too. Never saw her do it!
My females flare at each other and at the males. They seem to like each other and often play and chase each other back and forth along the divider but they do flare too.
Mine two girls didn't get along at all..but no injuries...they'd flare out at each other all the time.
when we first started out and the 'fish expert' recommended a sorority tank, we saw LOTS of flaring out of the female bettas! the 3 female splendens that we have now have never flared.
My female flares all the time. It's funny seeing her trying to puff out her gills...she's so small and yet she thinks she looks so vicious...
Honey flares if she catches sight of Spot. Their tanks are next to each other and I have covered the side of her tank to avoid stressing them but if I am cleaning the tanks I'll let them interact for half an hour or so, she is funny but he just looks at her like a big dope! I HAVE NOT seen Spot Flare once though!! EVER!!
they are so individual, aren't they? angel sees mickey and will swim back & forth excitedly, but won't flare and mickey struts his stuff when he sees angel.
I don't blame Mickey, she is beautiful!
lol, well we told both of them to not get any ideas!
I remember asking this question before I became a breeder....I thought this photo of my girls was cute enough to share.......
YES, females DO flare just like the big boys if not better!
lol, that's so cute!
Prissy and Cami both showed me they can flare.
Only thing they don't have is that beard! Still can flare with the best of em
I always thought my female betta was too docile but when I see her flare every now and then I smile
lol.. ya, the girls can REALLY flare!
hehe I put a mirror up to my little female (I like calling her my baby girl) she was so cute she swan around trying to act tough although shes only an inch including her tail!
lol, that's for sure!!!
My one girl is scared of her reflection, Mama however is a terror Flares with a minI beard and all
Oh I hope it's ok that I dug up this thread! It's not that old...yet.
I thought this was appropriate to continue the discussion over female flares!
She's a little firecracker, lol
Wow, she is a mean little thing! lol.
Candice flares at me ..when she doesn't get what she wants! Spoiled girl.
Oh man, you should see Volta flare. She thinks that she is the baddest big boy on the block!
