Betta Tapping on Glass?

Okay, maybe a stupid question, but has your fish ever tapped on the glass?

I was watching the fish with my cat and I heard three little taps on the glass: nothing was up there to tap on the glass, so I think it was fishie himself. It looked almost like he was trying to "bite" it, but I didn't get a great look. I thought it was adorable and quite surprising!

Has this ever happened to anyone else?

(Also, the poor little guy has a case of the ick! It's getting better now, but I guess it might have been darting against the glass or something like that.)

Did you have the tank light on?
It's possible that he was attacking his reflection.

Ah! That could be!

I didn't see him flaring, but it certainly could be (he also usually just shows off rather than attacks when he sees the reflection in the mirror).
