I started out with four juvenile ~2in silver angelfish in a 100 gallon tank.  two had paired up, and they were getting along well, until one ( not in the pair) died last month.  following this, the pair became very aggressive towards the singleton, and tore off half of its dorsal fin before I intervened and placed it in a pond for safety (i live in Indonesia, so the pond is the right temperature, but is only 14 inches tall).  Is there any way I can safely reintroduce the singleton, or failing that, what is the most humane way of euthanising it? (I inherited these fish from someone who was moving away, and I don't know of anyone who could adopt it.)
The angels are all about 4.5 in long and 7-8 in tall right now.

You show no specific location within the states. It is possible you can find local folks in a fish club who might take it. You may be able to post on sites known to be good for posting this sort of thing and finding help in a specific geographic area. Where are you?

Please do not kill the fish, there should be better options available that can be found without a lot of effort. That size angel should be in demand in most places.

You can start by looking here:

if you are willing to give the fish away and let people pick it up, these two forums USA wide members and have pretty active forsale/wanted sub-forums:
