| || | Should I put down my Swordtail today?
Hi. My female Swordtail, Auraques, hasn't eaten in almost a week. She has been in my 1.5 gallon hospital tank for the last 8 hours. She has suffered from multiple cases of mouthrot (that stuff comes back everytime I take it off of the fungus medication). Right now she just sits on the bare floor of the hospital tank upside-down. She doesn't swim execpt when I scrare her (which isn't on purpose). I hononestly think she doesn't have any kind of a chance whatsoever.
Should I put her down? This wouldn't be the first time I've had to put down a fish. I want to give her every chance I give I can give her, but I don't want to be cruel. This thread doesn't really require expertise, just opinion. I want to be the best fish owner I can be. Sorry for such a diffecult topic. Opinions will be appreciated. Thanks.
