For all of you that think I'm BAD for saying to use a damsel. Go to general discussion and read "kill a fish". Besides, hypothetically speaking, if a cure was found for whatever, would you kill one to save the rest???
I have certainly missed something. Most people that use damsels to cycle tanks, have been listening to their LFS
, it is not the person I think is bad....it is the LFS
. Once you know there is a way to cycle the tank that is cheaper, better for the fish and as efficient, if not moreso, than using live fish....then I just don't understand it. I don't necessarily think that person is bad, but I do disagree with them and I fail to understand their method.
As for the To kill a fish thread, Euthanasia is somethimes necessary to end the fishes suffering in a hopeless case, whether you choose to put the fish down and how is a personal decision, but if you choose to do it, I think a discussion on the fastest, most humane way to do it is beneficial and appropriate.
