same but I wrap them in toilet paper and set them in the toilet (a sort of odd mummification) I don't just toss them in there and flush.

I don't think flushing them is a good idea because they will end up back in the water system eventually including the pathogens they died of and this could spread to other local native fish. I think the garden idea is good, or simply pop them into a plastic bag and into the trash.
