*Raises hand* My fish is named Phil. Not Phillip, though, just Phil.
I don't have little kids over well...ever. But I did go away for a long weekend (labor day) and left specific instructions on feeding him (I live with my parents and teenage sister currently). I got back and the tank was filthy, even though I had done a full cleaning just before I left, and poor Phil was bloated. They had just been shaking in pellets every day and massively overfed him. I had to clean the tank again which likely stressed him out more and then fast him for a few days which made him really moody. He was flaring at EVERYTHING for a good week after that, and he normally rarely flares even if provoked with a mirror.
