I need help! Please! Quickly!

i am willing to order stuff or what ever it takes but right now, i need help, my fish has a SERIOUS case of fin rot... he WAS a half moon but now looks like a PK almost ALL of his fins are gone...... i went on vacation, and came back, after having so many cases often rot i told my family what to look out for while i was gone, and i was looking forward to seeing my babies, but i get home and my NEW my FREAKING BRAND NEW HM/DT w/e has practically NO fins, and admittedly i was shocked after what i told them, and even more so when my sister said, she didn't notice that when i left he had fins and when i came back had NONE! so i need help, QUICKLY, and need to know what to buy. and anything else.

if it happened that fast. go get maracyn one and two (double check on maracyn 2 because i dont remember if it treats fin rot), and use them both at the same time, also qt him, clean clean water, keep it heated, if you can turn the temp up on your heater, make it 82 degrees
