I think it's time to say goodbye to Spot.

I guess its time to say goodbye to my boy Spot.

As many of you may know,he's been suffered from swim bladder damage back in June, and has been head standing ever since, yet still managing to move around the tank and eat.  Sadly, over the past week his condition has deterioriated. He's begun pineconing, and either lying on his side, or upside-down on the bottom, to the point where he can't even feed himself any more. Worse, I think little rabbit has been picking on him.

I have a bottle of clove oil, whats missing is finding the courage to do what needs to be done. :(

I'm so sorry you are having to go through this. It is the most unpleasant thing to have to do, but know that it is ultimately your final act of kindness to a dear friend. Again, I'm sorry. :(

Thanks for the support everyone. It really means a lot. I think I'm going to do some minor decorating in the tank. Removing one piece of driftwood, along with a plant that's been declining all year.
As for fish,I may look into getting another redcap sometime down the road from an online breeder/seller rather than a mass produced store fish. But for now I'm just going to concentrate on keeping Pudge healthy and happy, and raise Rabbit into a nice big piggy
