Wouldn't it be nice if everyone died peacefully while we sleep, to be honest Jes I wasn't even attached to this fish at all, I am just not an animal dispatcher... not even if they are suffering. we have 2 cats and occasionally they will bring a mouse in thats injured but not dead but I can't put it out of its misery, I just take it away from the cat and take it up to the woods and lay it down and apologise....... I'm a big softy at heart.
It had to be done, poor thing was not getting better. I asked Byrons advice and he recommended the paper towel and give it a bash with your palm trick, the quickest most stress free end he knows of. I toyed with this idea for a while and in the end decided on this method. It was horrible, even though I didn't do it, and friend came over and I got them to do it, but at least it was instant. I didn't like the idea of freezing, and now that Olympia says it can be violent as in they thrash around etc I am glad I didn't go down that route! I nearly did.
Oh well, its done now. lets hope it was an isolated incident and that the rest of them pop their clogs in an emotionally more convenient way in future.
cheers again everyone, its been ages since I interacted with people on here. I miss it.
