Yes I can see what you mean, but what i do is put in bag, then wallop, i hit it that hard on a counter it has no chance of surviving, and dead in heartbeat.
I hoping I won't have to do it to the guy, as I'm still trying my best to get it better, but time will tell.
But yes I have done the scissor thing before, too hard to hold most fish half the time that way, with my huge stubby fingers  *laugh*

    all this gloomy talk! the irish forums are on about culling hybrids and deformed juveniles. its cursed me - seen a flying fox stuck in the hole of a flowerpot and no way to free the fella. he was too stresses to spend time with the clove oil so had to knock the back of his head in a hurry, and force him out the hole. how he got so stuck i will never know but was so wedged in he took off all his scales

    kinda gutted but at least it wasn't thru sickness, and he was going free to a friend as didn't want to keep him.

    It is a gloomy thread, I'm afraid it's a gloomy subject.
    It has, however, been a very well-mannered look at a difficult subject, so do we think it's run it's course now and can be closed?
    I'm also tempted to "sticky" it to let people know how we feel?
    Any mods want to comment, as I've closed it from general additions?
    Sent from my PC as I still don't understand the the logic for mobile internet usage ;) *grin*
    I really hate "autocorrupt"!!!

    Yes, good idea, we'll  sticky it then we might not have to have this same discussion every few months :)


    As Ian said it is an emotive subject but this discussion has been a pleasant one, thank you guys :)
    Whoop-de-doo Basil, but what does it all mean?
