agrresive actions?

I was watching my oscar the other day and he tried to attack the glass of the aquarium. He blew his gills out and looked liked he wanted to attack me like {jaws} any thoughts on the matter, cuz I have never seen him do this before. I noticed him and my jaguar have been fighting more, because I feed them live fish twice a week instead of every other day. any thoughts are appreciated.

It seems to be fighting its reflection.;) The same thing can happen to bettas.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

My Betta does this all the time. It's excellent, and I believe a little of it is healthy for the fish - keeps them active. :D :D

The large Oscars I have had before would do it all the time.
They would get mad right around thier dinner time...imagine that
It's not uncommon to see a bit of a Temper with Oscars but most of the time I believe it's related to one of 2 things...
Food or Dominance...both of which Oscars want all they can get!
