Unhappy I am the worst fish owner ever

yesterday Flash died of of old age and/or ammonia poisoning. I was only gone for a week and I asked my neighbor to feed him but when I got home the tank was filthy so I said that I would clean it today but then Last night he died.

It's not your fault. The way you put it it was your friend's fault. Seriously, never put yourself down.
You can put your friend down though.
Some friend, huh?

I used to keep all my Bettas in divided half-gallons, I feel extremly guilty, but am I putting myself down?

don't feel bad. you treated him wonderfully, i'm sure. it's not your fault that your friend didn't do the simple job you asked of them.

Don't be too hard on yourself. The worst owner was that guy on YouTube who swallowed a live fish on a dare.

UGH. i saw that. it was horrid. then, when some people fussed at him about it, he said he'd do it again, and then said he'd do it with a lizard. ._______. i do agree. that guy's the worst betta owner ever.

I do not think you should place blame on yourself or your neighbor. All it would do is cause resentment. I would say to anyone make sure you trust they can care for your pet properly and fully understand the rules. But then again some people are just naive and always think they know best even when its your pet. I am sorry for your loss and just remember the good times you had together
