He's been doing this to the point where I don't go near his tank anymore unless I'm about a foot away. He's never acted like that before :/ And none of my boys have ever done it either....
Anyone have any insight? Maybe I spooked him? Or maybe he's stressed?

all they know is that if you can't hide your toast.Try adding floating plants/real or fake. And just a thought, could someone in your home be messing with your fish.
