My first euthanization.

I have to euthanize one of my fish for my 25 gallon. The others have eaten off his tail and he looks very much in pain, I will update this after I put my little fishy down.

I'm a spaz...

I'm so sorry you have to euthanize one of your fish! That has to be a difficult thing to do but we don't want to see our pets suffer.

I never wanna do that again... It makes me deeply disturbed to have to do it.

you did do the right thing, some people won't euthanize a fish, they wait till it dies on its own. i guess they feel fish arent important enough to bother with.:(

This is something that I haven't thought of since my tank is relatively new.

What is the most humane way to euthanize a fish?

Clove oil and vodka method? What the heck is that? Guess I have some googling to do.

And do you drink the vodka yourself to get through it? (yes kidding)

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