Exclamation Should I put down my goldfish



I was out all day, and for some reason someone in my house put my turtle in my fish tank. And he really did a number on my goldfish. My fish almost dead, swimming upside down and it just so sad. Should I end it to take him out of the pain.

That's a decision you need to make after looking at him and assessing his injuries and prospect of recovery. From what you are saying, it sounds like he has been seriously injured in which case he'll probably die from stress if not his actual injuries so, yes, I think it would be kinder to euthanize him. Do you know the kindest way to do it?

I'm sorry this has happened - whoever did it needs a good talking to, but deal with your poor fish first.

I wouldn't euthanise. (Hope it's not too late..)
I've heard that fiber can help cure some swim bladder problems... Squeeze the insides of a green pea in the water. May help.

I would euthanize. The fish MAY be able to rebound from its injuries, but it also probably won't. And it will be in severe pain until either happens.
