sometimes some animals don't recognize themselves in a mirror and think it's a different animal altogether
like some people can trigger betta fish into flaring at its own reflection because it will think its another male

So that is actually a trick used with apistogramma when in smaller tanks actually. It gets a male going on the defensive of the "other male" letting the female get a break if not ready for breeding.

I don't understand, the male fish sometimes hits the female fish

That's usually trying to force breeding or territorial behavior. Use a mirror to cause the male to have a new target.
I put aggressive 2 mirrors against male mirror
But sometimes she gets angry at the female fish
When will this happen?
Male - female fish side 5 days
Today I only put 2 mirrors
