Assisted Suicide

My poor Nudi Branch (see Gallery) got himself stuck in two different filters in two consecutive days. Looks like he finally did himself in. Parts of him where sucked into the slits in the filter screen. Those parts then expanded and dont look like they will fit through again. He's looking pretty torn up and I'm sure he's feeling it. My questions are.... Is it right to put him out of his misery? And if so, what is the most humane way to do this? Has anyone else had to make this decision??


TIA
Calvin

Only you can decide whether it is right, I have never kept nudis, so I have no idea what their chances of survival are after that kind of mishap.

The best method IMO, is to have a large bowl of ice cold saltwater. Place the nudi in it, it will very quickly go into shock and die. I have had to put down fish with this method..it is very effective and humane.
