I'm so sorry for you and your fish :( There is nothing worse than having to watch something you love, die slowly. I have used the 'freezing' method before (but with goldfish). It is humane, because as the water temperature drops, the fish's metabolism slows down. He just goes to sleep. It's hard, I know, but better than watching him suffer. I have had one of my bettas for over 3 years now, and he's not eating much these days. I know he isn't going to last forever, and I am preparing myself for it.
