Thumbs down Ugh, giving up on bettas?

So I posted not too long ago about how Mango, and Frosty had passed away, and in the past week or so my entire sorority and Midas have died as well.
I had a massive outbreak of columnaris, and I'm now down to just one betta, Alejandro. I completely broke down and disinfected his tank, but for now I think I am just going to stick with him and not get anymore.
This whole thing is just a little disheartening, and I'm still afraid that I might have forgotten to disinfect everything.

Oh no :(

So sorry to hear this. Take a break and see if you "need" more in a month or so.

:/ I'm so sorry I had a similar thing happen when Cash, Rain, and Bowser all died at the same time. Though mine died from something totally different... Don't give up, just hang in there and take care of Alejandro. You might feel the itch again soon, but if not you still have your little buddy

Awww! I'm sorry! I think that time has the power to heal anything, so just wait awhile. When you recover, you'll realize what's best for you. ^_^
