Question about Jaguar Chiclid



He's about 3 1/2" long, in long 55 gal tank, I've only had him for 4 months.
Almost doubled in size, hoping to put off moving him to 125 gal until July-ish.

He's fine, healthy, eats, active etc.....but for whatever reason he's taken to attacking one side of the lid. Have to put weights on it for fear of him slapping it open and flying out. Afraid he will eventually beat himself to death. PH is good and temp is perfect.

I've tried changing light density, covering the tank, keeping lights off and feeding the little monster till I think he'll pop. No way he's hungry, ........

He just started this a few week ago.

2. Apophis is growing like a weed

 


figured out why he is banging his head on the lid.

The water falling back into the tank from the external filter makes bubbles, the little monster is attacking the bubbles.

he is on a guppy/night crawler diet so I wonder if this isn't leftover behavior from when he ate pellets.

As I am talking to myself, I think that I am absolutely correct, and given some time I hope he will out grow this over time.
