Re: SUPER excited to introduce Bamboo!

So sad news with poor Bamboo. His heater went out in the days running up to Christmas (I noticed on xmas eve after stores had closed) and he developed fin rot. Despite a new heater and every other day water changes and adding Indian Almond leaves, it appeared to be getting better then got much worse overnight Monday. I've had him on bettafix all week, but it has gotten horrible now, his tail is almost gone and his fins are falling away. I have asked on a fish forum about what to do next (open to advice from you guys too) but I sadly do not know if he will make it. He's still eating and swimming around/active but if I can't stop this I don't think he'll be able to swim much longer.

I feel HORRIBLE Perhaps the suicidal goldfish I had a child should have been my clue I'm not good at keeping fish.
