"My twelve-year-old son has a fish tank with two goldfish
for the past four years. The large one he’s had for about
2 years. The smaller one he’s had for nearly 4 years.
He’s responsible for cleaning the tank. He has been instructed
and knows how to change the water and take care of the fish
when cleaning time for the tank comes. In the past, there had
been three or four times when the fish got very stressed by
the moving required to clean the tank and looked very weak and
couldn’t control their buoyancy and looked like they would
In all previous cases, we moved the QGM near the fish-tank
and applied (Mind) for 10-20 minutes or so right through the
glass wall of the tank, in the direction of the fish. Within
moments the fish would come around and begin to swim without
struggling and have immediate control of their buoyancy. By
the next day they would be totally fine. (When I was his age,
I remember the next day the fish would be floating on their
This time around, late on a Sunday in late July 2001, one of
the fish, the bigger one and most active of the two had an extremely
bad time of it. My son brought me to see it. He was distraught
and crying. He said the fish was very sick and that I had to
take care of it. My heart sank when he first showed me the fish.
He was barely moving, very weak. All he could do was struggle,
but couldn’t control himself, and he would sink to the
bottom. He was exhausting himself very rapidly and I really
didn’t think he had any time left. I rushed the QGM over
and began applying it as I had done other times before. I spent
more than 40 minutes with it. But it didn’t improve, not
even a little bit. It was now turned on its side and floating
listlessly on top of the water. It's mouth barely opening to
take in water. It's body was beginning to curl in the direction
of gravity with the tip of its tail pointing downward. I then
I addressed my son and tried to comfort him. Telling him that
sometimes it’s just too late, and we can’t help
things when they get that bad. He wanted to know what I was
doing, and why I had stopped applying the QGM!!! I told him
it was too late for the fish! He asked me why!?! I said, that
“it just was”, just look at it! He asked me why
I had given up on the fish! He reminded me that I had always
taught him that it’s never too late when it comes to helping
a life. I said of course I agreed, but this fish was dead! He
went to look at it, and came back. He said, “No, every
now and then it wiggles its tail a little bit”. It was
obvious to me that they were muscle spasms or death throes.
My son couldn’t know the difference.
I told him the fish was dying and we couldn’t help it.
He insisted I return to helping the fish. Just to please my
son, I returned, and applied the QGM for another 60 minutes,
non-stop! The fish didn’t move much; it just sank and
fell nearly flat on its side. It landed near a large rock and
it kept it propped halfway on its side. Its tail was facing
towards us, and its face and mouth facing away so we couldn’t
see it. It didn’t move, it was totally listless. I stopped
at that point and told him, that was it. We couldn’t help
it. He began to cry and told me I had given up on the fish!
And how could I do that!
He complained bitterly to his mother and couldn’t understand
how easily I had given up! I showed the fish to his mother and
she agreed also that it was too late, but not to give up, just
not to disappoint our son. I did another 20 minutes with the
QGM, but the fish didn’t move. It was late now, close
to 1 am in the morning and my son didn’t want me to give
up yet. So, what I did was set the QGM up next to the fish tank,
propped the transducer head up with a towel, and left it set
on “low” all night long pointed toward the inert
fish. The left side of the fish was resting on the rock and
this was the side closest to the tank wall and closest to the
QGM and the only vantage point where I could keep it.
The next morning, the fish was nearly in the same spot, but
it was on the other side of the rock, still lying on its side,
but this time it was on the side of the rock that left its whole
flank completely exposed to the QGM. It was listless and inert.
We could see its mouth. It was half-cocked and barely moving.
It looked dull and in a trance. I left the QGM running when
we all left for the day. When I returned in the late afternoon,
my priority was to turn off and remove the QGM from the side
of the fish tank. The fish was floating on its side, in the
middle of the fish tank. It was listless, on its side, with
its tail pointing down. Its mouth was open and didn’t
appear to be moving. I quickly left it. As I expected, it was
I didn’t have the heart to take the fish out of the tank.
I decided to leave it until my son could witness for himself
that the fish was dead. That evening I expected to hear a lot
of crying. But not a peep from my son. Around 8 pm I went to
look at the fish. And there it was! Swimming around, completely
normal, without a struggle! Completely fluid and swimming fast!
My son only told me “Of course!” It’s what
he expected. I couldn’t believe it. But it occurred exactly
as I’ve described it. Not only did the fish recover, but
he is alive and well to this day, doing better than ever, as
if the episode had never occurred; and neither fish have ever
had a repeat episode of stress after changing the tank. I don’t
think either fish would be alive if it weren’t for the
