RE: killing fish - was dying fish
I agree with OLGA, about 10 years ago I had a long lived Oscar, 11" in
length. When moving into a new apartment, I grew a little neglectful and
left him in a five gallon bucket for a few days. I'm quite embarrassed to
even recall it. He quickly developed severe lesions on his head and body.
While racing to set up the 55gal tank I shattered the glass. Knowing I
would not have a place for him soon, I decided the humane thing to do was to
put him out of his misery. I consulted a vet and he prescribed placing him
in the freezer. It was approx. -15 degF that day, so I placed him on the
back deck. He never flinched. Just passed away.
Haven't kept large fish since. They are a huge bio load and tough on
