That tang is normal in his actions. You can tell its territorial by the way he is swinging his tail to hit it with his "spike". Maybe try the poster board to get him away from it but he looks healthy, moves fast and has a good color. I would worry to much unless he changes which may be a sign of stress from trying to fight his "enemy".

Just plain white poster board. I dunno... You could put it up for a bit and see if it calms him... Then take it down after a bit and see if he is distracted enough by the rest d the tank to not obsess over that one wall and his reflection.
