Ooohh lol. I do that a lot :P.

If your interested, the method I used was put the right clove oil dosage in, wait for the fish to be passed out, then pour in vodka. We didn't have any liquor, so I had to use some white wine. It still worked humanely and I was able to make a toast a nd take a (big) gulp.

True, it is sort of a non-laughing topic. But I believe my passed betta Turtle would want me to find some humor in the situation :), he didn't like to see me sad.

Yeah. I'm not easily broken up about pets dying...It's not that I don't care. I just don't get worked up. :/

Though my fish is going to make me sad if he doesn't pull through whatever just hit him. ;A;

Same. I get really sad the day it happens. When Turtle died I cried so hard, and also the next day at his funeral. But I guess my mind makes it fade away so it doesn't hurt as bad. What really hurt me was the fact that his death was my fault. Inexperience, ignorance, and bad water quality does not mix well :/

Yeah. I think that's what's getting me right now. Just plain inexperience. I can't recognize what reasons my fish could be acting up.

Clove oil is humane.

My bro works in a tropical fish shop here in NI and that is the method they employ when necessary.
