Also, when his fin starts to grow back, it will look white in color, so do not worry about that--it's a good sign of regrowth!
Thank you! I'm feeling better about this thanks to the awesome support from everyone here. I know he's going to be okay, I'm just sad I was silly enough to let it happen at all! Thanks for the tip about the regrown fin, I probably would have been on here freaking out about that, too lol

Yeah, we all make mistakes. I dropped a fish down the drain the other day; many of you probably saw the post. Ripped the pipes out of the wall and managed to get him back, but let me tell you how bad I felt! He is great now, but the point is, no matter how hard we try, we all make mistakes. :)
