blak skirt tetra sick

I was just watching my fish and I noticed that one of my black skirt tetras had a weird bubble coming out its bottom. It was probably about 1/4 cm in diameter and it looked kind of reddish inside. He was really fat as well. I transferred him to my quarantine tank and the bubble burst in the process, now it looks almost like his intestines are coming out.

He doesn't look sluggish or anything...

what the heck is going on?

Could you get a pic, if members could see it maybe someone would recognise it. I'm not great with diseases but would be more than happy to research the problem for you and let you know where to look to try and sort the problem out.
