Fish have very short term memories. I wouldn’t worry about whether your fish thinks you are trying to kill it. Just don’t do it again.

in addition, I just saw the video and the size tank you have the fish in. ,no wonder it is acting weird! that tank is absolutely WAY too small for that type of fish. the fish you have looks to be some kind of cichlid, which needs at least a 20 gallon long tank. cichlids need loads of room to swim. They are fast moving swimmers. Your fish can barely move in that tank. Get in into a bigger twnk as soon as possible or it will continue to decline and eventually die.

Why are you taking the fish out to do water changes? Aside from being cramped in that tank, removing it to do a water change will just stress it out.
