maybe the outside of your tank (your room) is too dark compared to the tank when the lights are on, so thats why he can see his reflection. maybe keep the outside of your tank brighter so he wont be able to see his reflection on the glass

How long have you had him? When I first got Neptune he would do the same thing. He did it for a week or two. I have 2 bunches of Anacharis and a fake plant in his 5 gallon. He shoul;d feel pretty secure there. For background on my tanks I use black construction paper.
