Poor Sunset has gotten even larger. I'm going to have to euthanize him. :( How should I go about it? I heard putting them in between a towel then hitting it with a hammer is a good way to go about it.

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

:( Personally, I use the clove oil method, and when I don't have clove oil I use the freezing method (though some people say it hurts the fish sort of how it hurts humans). I've only had to euthanize a few bettas, and they were large so I didn't want to do the hammer method. But, since he's such a tiny thing, you could probably do that... just make sure to aim for the head... so long as you hit hard, it'd work and it'd be painless for him

He's been euthanized (hammer). :( I buried him with all of my other fishies under a flowery bush. :)

Thanks so much for all of your help - I really do appreciate it.

awww, sorry to hear! And dang you're brave for the hammer method x) I couldn't do it.

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.
