I usually toss them outside or down the toilet. I ONLY suggest sending them down the toilet if you have a spetic tank.

Sadly I lost half the stock in my 55gal yesterday. Including the pretty fish in my sig

I agree except if you have a septic tank like I stated above. I don't care what you are sending down there, if it is dead or alive, animal or plant. It's only going to come out dead. If it ever comes out at all.....

Yeah I'm still trying to come to grips with it. Biggest fish lose I've ever had, lost 12-14 fish . Not completely sure what happened. I did a lot of work on the tank on tuesday, but nothing extremely drastic. Yesterday I came home to a 2ish ppm nitrite spike and a nightmare. No ammonia present and on top of that its only been 24 hours and nitrite has stopped rising. Its been sitting at .1ppm all day now and I'm guessing will be gone by tomorrow.
