I have always put my casualty's in the freezer for a day and flush or bury them later..... Just in case
Yes just in case they were alive, now they freeze to death out of water and with no oxygen..... I would take the chlorine over that any day if I was a fish....

Great commercial though, I remember seeing it on tv years ago.

Well I just lost 8 neons to ich. Most I found stuck to the filter intake barely breathing. I figured death by freezing was kinder than death by flushing or suffocating in the trash.

Death by freezing is inhumane. The liquid in their body turns into ice while they are still alive. They feel every ice splinter. The humane freezing method:

1. Fill a tupperware container with dechlorinated water.

2. Put the container into the freezer.

3. Keep checking it until a very thin layer of ice forms. Break the layer. Stir the water.

4. Wait for a second layer to form. Break it.

5. Net the fish and quickly get them into the water. They will thrash but will stop moving within five or ten seconds at the most.

6. Put the container into the freezer. You can drain most of the water out.

This way, the fish instantly goes into shock and it doesn't feel anything other than the initial coldness.

Losing fish sucks, hate to hear you lost some of your neons. I've been very lucky with my fish I guess.

It was a bad batch from pet supermarket. They were very young and quite infested with ich. I have learned my lesson on QT. as well as my lesson on not to buy from stores like that. I will now only buy from my local store that gets most of their stock from local sources.

P.s. if the price sounds too good to be true it usually is. The neons were on sale for $.88 for 2. Most of them died within 4 days.

From what I hear the most humane way to euthanize a fish is to put them in a solution of clove oil (sedative), and then give em some good old monarch vodka. No joke clove oil and white grain liquor is the way to go. Google it to find the correct proportions of clove oil and alcohol.

This will sound horrible, but when I worked in a pet store, we had an oscar with dropsy, we rang the LFS who had more experience and asked what to do. he said the most humane way he did it, for larger fish, was to slam the fish on the ground, as in to throw it forcefully on the ground. he said that way the fish felt nothing.

None of us felt right doing that, so when the vet came in to microchip the new pups, we gave it to her to put down.

Sounds horrible, huh?

Well, my streak ended... I found one of my goldfish in my python today when I was syphoning the tank. I was out of the room when he got stuck and un fortunately I couldn't save it. He went the way of the toilet, so that answers your question... When I lose a fish I flush it....
