Betta banging on the glass?

Way back when I got my first betta, he developed a strange habit. He would swim to the side of his tank and bang his jaw on the glass. I always liked to think it was his way to get my attention to tell me he was hungry but I've never been able to find a definitive answer to why he did this. Anyone else ever have this happen?

just sounds like an aggressive betta, mine does that and sometimes he even flares and hits near the surface of the water. weird right.

He def was the most aggressive betta I've ever had. He would flare at everything I held up to his tank. That's kinda why I picked him. He was flipping out in his cup at the fish in the cup next to his at the store. I miss that little guy.

those are the easiest to take care of, because you know exactly when they are ill and when they thrive and are healthy.

Sadly I knew nothing about betta diseases back then. He got sick and just hung at the bottom unable to move. I was young and stupid then. Now my boys are much better taken care of.
