I mean I will euthanize him if it's too much.

(I think I'm gonna ignore clove oil, I don't wanna torture by accident or anything)

C. Rehome him.
D. Euthanize him
E. Keep to the old routine with little water changes and let sickness take him


Those are the options.

Whichever one you choose is up to you.
*gasp* (this brings a small shiver to me, nightmare fuel)

I asked my mom if I can buy the medicine, her anwser was... yes.


I think I'm going with A here.

Actually, clove oil is the best method out there. It puts the fish into deep sleep when dosed slightly and then you put in some more and he's gone with no pain.

It's great you'll get some meds! Finally... :)

Oh, I know you won't have to. It's just a last resort if all else fails. Hopefully you won't have to come to that... It's aquarium salt you're buying, yes?

Because on bettatalk it said it's ok for slight fin rots and King Dedede has a slight fin rot. I might not get it tommorow or something, so please correct me if you think it might the the wrong medicine...

Was I correct with getting maracin 1 or 2 or should I just use plain AQ salt?

...
dont get him meds. get a heater...
it will get to the root of your problems.

it like buying medicine for a cold whilst being left out in the freezing snow. you're not going to get better right!

And stop trying to euthanize him. you're like toying with his life when he is completely curable.

The best way to euthanise a fish though... is a quick heavy blow to the head, crushing the skull ... that will kill it instantly. kind of like beheading....or if you have a food disposal.. thats a goid way too. instant death
