  • Now that your turtle is too big for its tank, think it'll be better off in the wild? Nope! Same goes for goldfish. Releasing pets into habitats where they're not native to is a very bad idea. Watch this video to see what happened to a local lake when a few goldfish were released!

    To those of you who are concerned about the way we euthanized the fish, that was how the DNR instructed us to do it in order to legally remove them from the lakes. We were required to put them on ice.
    As much as I would have preferred to use Club Soda instead, my first priority is to make sure everything is done legally.

      You should freeze them first, it kills most of the parasites.

    It’s kinda fucked up if you think about it, she’s just piling up the dead bodies on top of each other, so the newest fish are just slowly suffocating on top of their dead friends..
