And I don't have clove oil at the moment. Need to get some though.
    Read the link from AVMA, slow freezing is cruel for fish not sedated. There isn't a house freezer that can freeze them instantaneously.

    If you want a mucher faster euthanization, squeeze the head of the fish fast and hard using your index finger and thumb.

    Ok, first off, I don't think I could ever squeeze the head of a fish to end it's life nor could I chop it off. Eww....I checked the water and it was at 34F so I netted the danio and put him in it. Of course he twitched at first but as you said, Rocksor, his gill movement ceased within 20 seconds. He is now in my freezer and at least he is done suffering. I appreciate all your help.
    Also, thanks for that article from the AVMA. Very good info ;)

    No, "not any different" would be like crushing the horse's head with your hands ;)

I just recently signed a contract with a facility for the next few months (I usually work per diem) and my hours are M-F 8-4:30pm How sweet is that!? ha ha.....I work in health care, so when I'm scheduled 2-10:30 pm shift per say, I know I'm not getting out of there until 1-3hrs PAST my shift. Hopefully now I will be done on time. :) And I can spend some more time here.
    I can't wait to see/hear how everyone's tanks are doing :)
    The "like" button should be working fine, click once to like, click again to remove the "like" if you change your mind.

    Good to have you back, congrats on the new job schedule, and looking forward to hearing more from you now.

    I'm glad the ice water and freezer method worked and went as expected. It's never easy to euthanize, but the key thing you said "the fish is not suffering anymore".

    So I don't have ensure the fish has expired before placing in the freezer as long as the fish is completely sedated? From what I read from the PDF, the sensors in the brain is what allows the fish (or any animal) to feel pain. If they are completely sedated with clove oil, will they feel it?

    So it's still not really known?
    I guess how you described sensations in your arm is a good example, they can react, but this reaction is not necessarily due to actually feeling pain. At least, not the way we (humans) know it.

    Thanks for the link :)
