Hi,

Don't know where you are, but I have bought clove oil at pharmacies and even Wal-Mart in the essential oils section.

Sorry you are having to do this!!! :(

well I will check there I honestly didn’t want run around looking for some while he was suffering and the place I could think of didn’t have any anyway I ended up phoning where I buy my fish from to see if they knew if I could use clove leaf oil and he said I either gotta do blunt force trauma whith good hard hit to the head but I honestly couldn’t do that so he said next most humane thing is put in a bag with aquarium water and freeze him so that’s what I opted for as he said he will just get a bit cold and go to sleep I really hate when this happens I just had him in a hospital tank got him all healed up and removed the fish that was bothering him and watched and the other Gish weren’t to aggressive and when I came back in the morning he was way past the point of saving

So sorry about your poor fish!

Sometimes things happen very quickly, and they go downhill faster than you expected.

Unfortunately, after having to euthanize a betta before, I keep clove oil on hand....wish I didn't have to, though. I really hate the smell of it.

You did your best!
