Best Answer

I had a couple of glass cats and they were very aggressive at feeding time. The rest of the time they kept a low profile. But at feeding time they would swim to the surface and kind of go into a frenzy, whipping around and nipping the other fish (tetras). One nipped me once when I put my hand in the tank to fix a plant, and I felt it!
