| || | Euthanizing my pygmy cory
I bought 5 little pygmy cories just over a month ago and one was always pale and slower than the others to adjust to my tank. I just assumed he was stressed...
Today I see him very clear, and when I check he is very skinny. I put an algae wafer right next to him to see if it would tempt him. He just wriggled lightly away from the other cories and wouldn't move. Its like he doesn't have the strength to move. For some reason he wont eat, my params are good and the other cories are plump and active. I guess there's just something wrong with him internally
I have to euthanize him. His state is just terrible. He'll go on his side and wont move for hours. He did that and I shifted his QT (moved him toone) slightly and he slowely moved onto his belly and tried to wriggle forward. He can't make it
To euthanize him I'm going to freeze him. How exactly do I do this?
