I got a new betta yesterday, and now its spreading its gills from time to time. He also spreads all his fins while doing that. is he just showing off? or is something wrong with him?

Could just be display behavior. Hard to tell, especially since he's so new.

Sounds like he's just flaring. Typical Betta behavior. Means he is happy and healthy.

He would feel much better if you took his picture and posted it.

Especially when he is showing off!:19:
