I am writing to you again because I need help with a very tough decision for me to make.
It has been almost a week and my fishes mouth is still stuck wide open. I tried many times to put the jaw back in place but I was unable to do so. the fish is now in a 10 gallon hospital tank and he hovers at a 45 degree angle up toward the surface in the corner. He looks so sad with a permament scream on his face. I keep hoping the jaw will go back into place.
My question is should I put him to sleep? Or will he ever be able to eat and have a good life if he cannot close his jaw? Is it possible that he could put his own jaw back into place on his own in time? If I put him to sleep what is the most humane way of doing this? I have heard that it is best to put a bowl of water in the freezer and when it freezes over but before it is frozen solid, take it out and break a whole in the surface and put the fish in there and back into the freezer. Is that the best way? What about putting the fish in a bowl of soda?
I love my fish so this is a very hard decision for me to make. I need some help with it.
