Is my betta sick or angry?
My betta for some reason keeps blowing out his gills, and circling around his tank there is no other fish with him,i noticed his color is changing back to the original color somewhat.
But when he blows out his gills he goes crazy some times whats wrong with him? Is he on the verge of dying?

Lol he is flaring, they do that to make themseleves seem scary. Sounds like you've got an angry betta.

can he see his reflection? my fish goes flares at his reflection and goes kinda crazy when he sees himself. i taped papper to 2 of the 4 walls on the outside and that calmed him down quite a bit :) he still flares but not nearly as mucn (it used to be I could go in there for 2 hourse and he would flare 8 or more times while i was in that rooom)
