having a run of bad luck here...

Now, I have to euthanise a fish. It seems as though it's a parapelegic.
very odd, very sad. It's tail is remaining at a 45 degree angle to its body, but its mouth, gills, and front fins are trying to swim. :(

I have some water chilling in the freezer, preparing to do the deed...
Don't know how it happened... maybe it swam into the wrong spot at the wrong angle under the filter outflow?
it's never happened before...

I don't have many that look like blue moscows... now I have one less...

Oh no - that's so sad. Sorry you have to do that but if your fish is really suffering, you're doing the right thing for him.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

I'm sorry about your fish! I know it's a tough decision to make.
