Why is baby Oscar jumping up into tank lid?

My baby Oscar has been jumping all day .. he whacks the tank lid.. what does this mean?

He is just swimming up and down and banging into it.. he's had flakes and pellets (he/she) so it's not hunger!

He could be seeing a reflection of light off the surface that imitates a natural prey fish or something. Other than that my only idea would be either too cold or too hot as far as your tank temperature.

He is jumping up at the reflecive guard on the lights.. they're like Mirrors!

He's so much fun! We've been watching him for hours...

I still don't know what sex 'he' is though... :D

Will hopefully find out when we pair him off.
