I'd keep an eye on the ammonia/nitrite/nitrate levels and perform water changes as needed since this appeared to be a problem a few weeks ago. Also, switching the stock from a goldfish to an overstocked (IMO
) tropical collection in less than two weeks is rather aggressive considering the tank does not appear to be completely cycled.
And I'm not here to lecture you about how to euthanize a fish but as for disposal, toilet flushing is generally not a good thing to do.
