:( Sorry to hear that. This looks really yucky though... Maybe it's time to put him out of his misery?

And just before you laid dead weight upon its shores, I stung you in the face for that's the nature of my core.

His actual belly had split open a bit! It had got to the point today where it was just too cruel. How he was still swimming around I have no idea!

I needed to do it quickly and painless. One of my finrot meds active ingredient was phenoxyethanol we read that this would be quick. Placed him in mix of water 5cm and 10ml of the above he died in about 3 seconds. It was very, very quick although he seemed to be panicking for a second or two.

One of the hardest things I have had to do but for the best I think.

Just wanted to say thank you for your help and information supplied.

PS none of the other fish are ill this illness only seemed to affect him well I am keeping my fingers crossed as donít want to have to do that again.

PPS, i did a lot of research on fish euthanasia and i found the info below a lot of help the reason i went for phenoxyethanol
