Thanks JK, I was actually hoping you'd respond, because of your comment on someone elses post, you're the reason I was so worried! I just don't want him to suffer anymore :( I'm glad to know he's not and that I can bury him now.

Oops, I didn't mean to make anyone worry.... I probably should have explained better in my other post. Sorry about that.

Out of curiousity, what are the three species that CAN live after being frozen?

To the original poster, sorry about your betta. :(

Did you at least put him to sleep (clove oil) BEFORE freezing him? I have read that just sticking them in the freezer (when awake) is NOT humane. As it gets colder ice crystals form in all the tissues. These ice crystals have sharp edges and can cause pain. Putting them in clove oil and then dumping them in iced water is what I do.

Dazzle Kitty: >.< I can't name them off the top of my head, but most of the animals are fish, amphibians, bugs and reptiles, all of which are cold blooded.

I can't find an exact list, but this has some species in it that can survive.

:( I didn't know that! But thanks, now I feel really bad. And definitely do not want to own a fish for a long while. Thanks dazzlekitty.

I know frogs can survive being frozen, but that's the only one I can think of.

Metal: I just did a bit more looking to find an exact list, and some frogs can be frozen solid during winter O_o.

HankBetta: :( Don't feel so sad, you didn't know, and right now he's in a better place. Personally I think what you did was better than let him live and suffer.

I thought that only goldfish/koi things like that could come back to life after being frozen. I could be way wrong, heard that somewhere once.

but with thinking that, it would seem like tropical fish couldnt come back.
