Fishy is mad at me for fasting her

Today is Fishy's fasting day. Every time I go near the tank, she darts to the top waiting for food. When it doesn't come she flares at me. Sheesh

All animals are hardwire from nature to eat all they can because they don't know when they will eat next. So if they know you mean food, they are going to go up to the glass. So she isn't mad at you...

Yeah, but she only flares at me on fasting days after she realizes I'm not going to feed her. Otherwise she never flares, not even at her reflection (which I know some females do) or strange objects. The only other time I saw her flare was when I first introduced her to freeze dried blood worms before she realized they were food.

And the time I nudged off the top of the heater when she was sick a few weeks ago.
