If we're going to talk about ways to euth a fish, IMO the most humane way is to use clove oil. You put the fish in a deep sleep with the clove oil and then net it and dip it in boiling water for a second or two. This is the method that I've heard of being most humane.

Honestly, I think you should euth him. The chances of him recovering are very slim, and I wouldn't want him to suffer.

But, it's ALL your choice. I strongly suggest you don't flush him though..

Never heard of that Clove Oil method... I read Clove Oil to put them to sleep, then vodka (I think ;x) to kill him...

Yeah I read an article on that not too long ago, clove oil + vodka. *shudders* ... That'd probably be the most painless.

I thought it would be the most painless way for him to go IF he must go.I understand your point of view, but i still would go with the freezing method its quick and virtually painless for the fish. I just dont want fish to suffer more than they need to that's all.
