Do not refreeze the leftover's, they can sit in the fridge for a few day's (I would say five at the max but there's no set date). Instead you can chop off a sliver to thaw out and keep the rest frozen, that's what I do as well ^_^ makes it easier.

As for your boy here, I would do two 50% water changes weekly for him right now so that his fins can start to grow back. You want to keep the water healthy and clean so that the fin's don't get bacterial infections like rot. So with the combination of that, a good diet and possibly some meds if needed he should be all set! I also use fishy vitamins lol. I get them from here: http://www.drsfostersmith.com/produc...98&pcatid=4998 if you get it make sure it's the freshwater one lol. But I've seen quite an improvement since I've used it so that's nice too Sometimes I forget so my fish don't get it all the time but they're vitamins, what's there bad about those? lol And because our fish don't get all the minerals and vitamins they would get in the wild, it makes sense.
Thanks I'll give them some more tomorrow then :) they seem to really like the blood worms I am worried to over feed them since I just lost my Percy and I think that over feeding started his sickness so many people say to feed them this many times and other people say that many times so I'm not sure what is to much or enough lol my one would eat till he popped if you let him his a lil piggy lol

Is the light blinking constantly ? OR is it like that:
When the heater reaches the temperature you set, it goes off and the indicator light goes off too telling you the heater is off. Soon the temperature drops again and the heater, and the indicator light, comes back on. Is it looks like happening right now?

i think what happening is the reason its flashing is because A Electronic sensor accurately monitors the temperature which can be set from 20-34 degrees C. The heater incorporates a warning light to alert you to any undesired temperature change. The light will flash fast if the temperature is +3 above and when the temperature is -3 below
How long its doing it? And do you have thermometer in the tank ? Can you check the temperature and see if it stable ?

That makes sense because I turned it down to lower the temp because it was at 80 and when I did that that's when it started flashing so it's not broken I don't think
