    :D But surely they don’t actually drown? Or is it the whoosh of the flush which finishes them off? I mean it’s not like chucking DYING MICE down there

    It's really cruel flushing them apparently..it's a painful and slow death and bad for the environment.

    I mean no death is pleasant to be fair. Years ago I had a fish and I needed to kill it so I put it on a plate in the sun in the garden and left it for 10 mins. Came back and the cat was playing with it.

    I really should stop getting pets.

    I've learnt since then. I now use Mandy and a saucepan.

    I'm ordering clove oil. And trying to find somewhere that will sell me fish in lockdown.

    :oi: I have a very spoilt cat and rabbit. And the fish was killed in the most humane way.

    He had dropsy and was pineconing. I didn't just wake up and think "bit bored of day 56 of furlough, might kill a fish for fun".

    Is it basically where they start swanning around with a glistening necklace of turds hanging from their nethers?

    Pretty much :disco:

    Plus they bloat and slowly die a painful death. So putting him out of his misery was the kindest thing to do.

    But I don't understand: why did this fish need to DIE? Was it being euthanized or something?

    EDIT: IT'S FINE. I'VE SEEN THE POSTS ABOVE

    Because it was suffering :( he had been sat on the bottom of the tank for 2 days barely moving and bloating even more. I looked at ways to treat him but the the time they get that bloated it means their organs are failing so couldn't be saved. So rather than leaving him to slowly die in pain and be eaten by the shrimp, it was kinder to kill him.

    Annoyingly, when I got him, no one I spoke to said fighters don't do well in hard water. And I had no idea how hard Isle of Wight water was.

    :D if you are also bloating and not eating, then I can't guarantee I won't kill you

    One of my goldfish used to get dropsy and I'd just feed him a frozen pea every couple of days and he'd be fine again for months. He wasn't tropical or anything and lived on his own, I suppose that's more difficult to do with lots of other fish in the tank.

    Yeah I did try the pea thing but it didn't work. Bettas are ridiculously hard to keep in the water we've got down here. I need hardy fish I think. My harlequins are doing really well and I test the water weekly, so I know it's more the fish than the living conditions.

    To be fair all the ones I've flushed were found floating on the top of the tank water already dead except for one who was dangling suspended upside down in the middle of the tank for three days and no amount of poking would make him swim. He gave a half-hearted wiggle as I scooped him up in a teacup but I think he was too far gone to suffer on his sewer-ride of a lifetime.

    What you need is fairground goldfish, they're bombproof and can live for decades in the skankiest conditions.

    I'm all for the improvement of both animal and human welfare as we progress as a society, but I do miss winning a fish on the old hook a duck.

    I have no idea, the last time I saw the fish was when the pond froze during the BEAST FROM THE EAST and we had to put them all in a bucket before they SUFFOCATED :D

    We couldn't keep ours alive for love nor money. In fairness, we didn't really try.

    I wanted to drain the tank because I thought there was some weird slimy fungus growing on the glass, until my housemate pointed out that it was a pleco.
