Girlfriend tapping the glass

Try tapping her on her head twice as hard every time she does ... see if THAT gets her attention.

At least she's not banging on the glass open palm like my kids

Yep .. I feel your pain ... trying to tell my kids not to bang on the glass is like

Maybe your 5 year old can explain the etiquettes of aquarium glass tapping.

You could always pound on a wall when she's resting or reading a book and tell her that it's pretty much the equivalent.

You could try telling her every time she taps the glass, the fish are thinking "look at this fool tapping the glass to get our attention."

If all else fails ... tell her by banging on the glass, she not being sensitive to the fish's needs

You realize however .. there's no guarantee on either.
