on the subject of euthanizing a fish...how would one go about that. I certainly could not let one suffer, but what is the typical or acceptable manner in carrying that out?

there are a couple threads on the forum here covering it that you could search for
2 ways people here do it -
1) use clove oil .
2) put it in a container with some tank water and place it in the freezer.Current tanks:
37G FW - 3 Pearl Gourami, 4 Black Mollies, approximately 20+ Molly Fry, 5 Assassin Snails | 10G Planted FW - 14 Molly Fry, rocks, DW and an Anubias Nana - journal

I've had to do this twice and I use clove oil, and always have it tucked away "just in case"

I do the one FT suggested, put it in a container with some tank water and place it in the freezer. Kind of like I'd like to go, just doze off from the cold.Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.

Did more research, read the Nathan Hill article and I am now better educated about this subject.
