    So I have a black balloon Molly who is laying on her side after weeks off odd swimming and laying belly to bottom
    I believe it to be a spinal issue as all other balloon Molly's are fine
    Recently she's got worse and I feel as if she is suffering and I want to help her
    Is their a way I can euthanize her painlessly ?

    I'm sorry about your molly :( clove oil is probably the most humane way imo.

    I'm very sorry about your molly, dear. :( Yes, the clove oil way is probably the best way to go.

    I suggest Clove can buy it in a health store (gnc) or walmart or Target sell it also I believe. It slowly puts them into the eternal sleep. Personally I thought it was very humane.

    Sorry ya have to go this route !

    Clove oil. Put her in a tub of water with one part clove oil and 8 or 9 parts of water. After a few minutes she should be unconscious and then you can add clove oil slowly until you're sure she is gone.
