I've never seen it before but just today my female betta started flaring, like a male betta, at a nerite snail. She didn't do anything, just flared, swam around, came back, flared some more. Is that common? Is it common for female bettas to flare? Her personality is what I'd call "outgoing". Never one to hid, always there inspecting everything I do in the tank. Stares at me through the glass begging for food. And all of this since day one. Every male betta I ever owned hid in the back scared of me for at least a few weeks. Any comments or observations welcome. BTW - it's her, a nerite snail, and a couple of ghost shrimp in a 10 gallon, heavily planted with driftwood.
