    How long has he been doing it? What fish you have in your tank? Mine did the same and in my friends tank but stopped a week or 2 later.

    Mine did the same for about 2 weeks. He was see his own reflection in the glass but gave up eventually chasing the other foxface☺

    Something might have given him a fright. Add any new fish recently? As long as he is eating he will be fine.

    He might be skittish about the new addition. It will blow over, just give it some time...
