Put mr.molly to sleep

My molly had a crooked spine and was gasping for breath, so I used clove oil to put him to sleep.

Open your eyes
Now is the time
To rise up
With darkness we'll still shine

Sorry to hear that :( RIP Mr. Molly.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

I think so but it got worse so I thought the kindest thing was to put him out of his misery

Sunset

I had Sunset for over 2 years and had to put him down today too using clove oil and alcohol. I hated to do it but he had been laying on his side not eating for 3 weeks. When I went over to him he never even moved. I think he was just dying of old age but even when I moved him to the tank I used for the clove oil, he didn't even more to protest. He was just too weak:( I hate it when fish die.
