I recently ( last night) put down my betta, which suffered from a benign tumor that wouldnt stop growing. I eventually felt it was time after every scale on his body was sticking straight out ( like a goldfish with dropsy ) and he just had to be in pain! I euthanized him via freezing method. And then after a good hour, I knew he was gone ( intumed in ice ). So I dethawed and did a disection on him just to see how large this tumor had really gotten. And took a picture of the tumor with somethign for scale. Try to imagine this in a betta.
Pretty sad eh? Least he had a good life in the sense he had his own planted clean 10gal! I feel good about that.
