Thanks for all the feedback guys. I think what I'm going to do is euthenize
it with alka-seltzer (and hope it all just rinses off), store it in
isopropyl alcohol until I have time to really get some sweet macro shots of
its mouth... And then finally preserve in a 10% formalin solution (my old
way) or even better, one of Bruce's suggested buffered solutions. Once I
start school I will probably have access to all of this stuff. It certainly
would be nice to have clove oil or MS-222, but I have to work with what I
have right now on this one. So... Off to the gas chamber! ;)

Thanks again,
