    So last night my cory flipped on its side, and was acting weird not normal, i did a 20% water change and went to bed( 11 pm) when i woke up he was upside down breathing slowly, i don't think i can do anything about it and doesn't look like he's going to make it, everyone else in tank is fine water conditions normal, should i suggest euthanizing?:(:(:(:( i really don't want him to die he was my 2nd fish and his name is ringo after ringo starr from the beatles :(

    If you wish to euthanize him put him in a cup with 4-5 drops of Clove oil! It is the best way

    It doesn't sound good, without seeing a pic I don't know what it could be or if there's anything you can do

    at least he's not suffering any more... and you wouldn't be the one to euthanize him...

    So sorry! It's never easy... but this poem helps me. I like to think there's one gigantic tank next to the meadow. Where ALL fish can hang out. Regardless of what had to be here on earth. So they get to make all kinds of new friends waiting for us

    I have that poem in a picture frame next to my first two cats who died in 2009 and 2012 both were rescues and both were 18 years old and I had them since they were 7 weeks old. Yes they were cremated and they were special isn't all of our animal friends including our fish
