OK. a lot of folks search the internet to solve a problem or to answer a question. If such folks are searching the internet to solve a problem or question in regards to their aquarium it is quite likely it is due to abnormal fish behavior.

I think a sticky should be made of a topic regarding what behavior warrants euthanizing a fish and what the most effective means of doing so are (not much room for experimentation or hypothesis should be allowed), plain and simple what the best way to end the suffering of a fish and what steps someone should follow in determining if a fish can recover from a ailment or not.

I agree and if it is not possible, then at least a small article in the Artciles section will do great; I just skimmed over the articles and there is not one article about euthanasia or a similar topic and I think it is very important.

Sure people search for answers about questions/problems. I don't see how an article could be written that takes the reader step by step on their opinion of what qualifies as their reasons for euthanizing fish. This is always a hot topic and many people have different opinions and beliefs on this subject. To me, it's a very personal subject, that doesn't have an easy answer. Circumstances, age of the fish, illness and many other things must be considered, as we're not all the same, and the degree of illness plays a big roll.

FWIW, we do have many older threads on this subject and they can be found by doing a search of the forums. And you can clearly see that opinions very greatly.
