depends on the lighting and believe it or not what you're wearing in some cases.
for example, during the day between natural light in the room and the light in the tank my betta never flares at me. however, when its darker in the room and the light is on in the tank, he sees his own reflection and tries to attack it. he also sees his own reflection pretty well if i approach the tank wearing darker colors, especially my favorite black hoodie haha.
and even if hes not seeing his own reflection, he may just not be used to your face. my girlfriends betta used to flare at me all the time, but now that i watch him over breaks hes gotten used to me and doesnt do it anymore.
