I did the temp shock method. I put a cup of water in the freezer until it was slushy, nearly frozen then put my Betta into it, she was gone very quickly. You have to weigh what's best for the fish & what's available to you at the time. I would do this method again if I was faced with having to euthanize again. I was admonished by those who disagree with that method but that's the way it goes.

Where do you purchase clove oil? It's upsetting just thinking about it, but it seems to be something that should be kept on hand just in case.

I found my clove oil at my local mom-pop pharmacy. It was nearly teeth-gum care stuff.

I find clove oil at my local grocery store in the organic isle right beside the GMO dogs.

Honestly, it isn't something I keep on hand.. I'm not going to argue against euthanasia, but I don't think it's something that should be jumped into. I'm hoping this information won't make people more likely to euthanize, because a lot of people who post here are not very well informed on betta illness and care. Most cases of seriously ill bettas results for owner neglect anyway. Not always, but I read every thread on this forum and so I KNOW almost every one is a case where the owner was not taking care of the fish the way they should. I don't want someone to read this and decide they need to go get clove oil, without being fully informed and/or without trying to correct their keeping habits first and at least give the fish a chance.
