I have a cory that isn’t going to make it but whenever I check to see if it’s alive it tries to mov and is still breathing. It’s really hard to watch and I’d like to make it suffering stop.

Have you tried doing any water changes? My way most here don't like, a heavy knife and a quick blow is very fast, sorry you have to go through this.

All the other fish are fine, there is no ammonia or nitrites, nitrates are low. I woke up and found it stuck to the filter intake tube so there is no way it’ll make it. I won’t be able to cut it or smoosh it, I’m a softie too. Thank you.

I read online that freezing the fish (with water). Is this a good idea?

Imagine freezing to death in Antarctica... I dunno, I'm more of a Palliative Care kind of guy...
