I am sorry but I totally disagree with this. Unless you are a lizzard or
some other kind of cold blooded animal we have not much in common with fish.
Fish being cold blooded they will fall asleep and go off to fish heaven in a
peaceful way. Their metabolism will slow down untill they are asleep and
then dead.
I am afraid a inept knife or razor blade wielding mad aquarist would not be
my choice of getting my head cut off.
