He's getting better! He's A LOT more responsive. Thank you for dealing with me, I'm sorry if I come off as a bad person, I had the best intentions with the pH. He is my first fish ever. I babysat a goldfish for a week and that's it. I didn't get a pamphlet or anything telling me how to take care of him but I must be doing okay because it's almost been a year and everyone else I know in person never had one more than a couple months.

He really is probably my best friend (other than my boyfriend [secret fiance]) I remember the exact day I got him, at Walmart, I spent my high school graduation money on him, along with food, a tank, pebbles, and a bridge that he loves and threw all the tank redecorations and getting a new tank he has had it. At Walmart I set aside two lively Bettas and asked "who wants to come home with me?" And Mozart stared at me. I truly fell in love. Even when driving home and my boyfriend was holding him he didn't stop looking at me.

So please understand I am not trying to hurt him, and I do love Mozart and care about him dearly. I stayed home all day crying in my room when I thought I killed him. (skipped class even though finals is next week)

Mozart loves me too, he watches me, he follows my finger. Funny fact about Mozart, his favorite color is white. Glass of milk near by he is eyeing like crazy. Have a white cat and he loves her xD but he doesn't get to see her much, I don't allow the cats in my room.

Sorry for the rant. I really don't want people to think I'm a bad owner.

Anyways he is eating more and swimming more, at this point I'd almost say he's just sick of the bowl and wants to see the outside.

I dont feel you are a bad fish owner. I think you're doing everything you can for him. You came here asking for advice and you want to do the right thing. That shows you care so I think you're a good fish parent. A bad one wouldn't bother.

I agree with DQ...a bad fish owner would not have asked for help......you did and you listened and now your fish is getting better...

We all have to start at some point and we all make mistakes...or at least I do...

Good to hear he is better......

I think the number of new keepers who make the mistake of messing with pH far outweighs the number who would "instinctively" know not to! Don't beat yourself up!

I agree with everyone. And the pet stores are always eager to sell you more 'product', which does NOT help. You're doing great! I'm glad he's getting better. :)

Thank you all for the support. I was really worried for Mozart and whether I was good enough to have such a loving fish. He is doing 100 times better. Thank you so much!
