Iíve had an emotional day with my blue gourami. He got himself stuck in an ornament (Ive had him for 6 months with this ornament in the whole time and never thought he could get stuck, anyway...) and I had a terrible time getting him out.
The ornament is rock material so I couldnít break it so it turned into a push/pull situation and now he is out but very stressed.
He is bruised and thereís a big dent in the top of his head where he was stuck plus a lot of scales came off in the struggle.
I put in salt and fungal treatment and left the lights off but heís just lying on the bottom of the tank, laboured breathing and moving every so often but itís like his tail wonít work and just moves with fins.
So should I euthanise him or has something like this happened to anyone before? Can he get better? I feel so guilty and sad for him.
Thank you x
