The little fish have done us proud - we bought a shoal of 13, 14 years ago and they have been happy in our 60l tank. However, we've been down to 2 for a while and today, the second to last died. I only have one left. Would it be kinder to kill it? I have heard about oil of cloves being the kindest way. I don't want any more fish. WWYD please? TIA

Do not kill it!

OK, Disco3000 I wasn't standing over it with the oil of cloves! grin
Is it going to be OK, bobbing about by itself though? Better than being dead, arguably? I don't know much about fish psychology, only that you are supposed to keep these in groups.

I know the sun total of nothing about fish but could you put it on a local selling site and see if a fish keeper will have it and pop it with his fish?

My fish lost his friend and continued on his own for a few years until the guilt got to me and I found someone to adopt him to their pond! Def look for someone to take it on.
