Neon Tetra Disease NTD ???
Hi guys, I'm new to the forum.

I've got two neon tetras which I've had for a while now which I just noticed today the coloration of their skin....err scales? seems to be "off" around their caudal fin. The coloration is a pinkish color. Other than the discoloration around the caudal fin, they seem to be fine.

I've had these fish since last November. I have not introduced any new fish or living organisms into the system since last November. Regular water changes and maintenance. The only other fish I have in the system are a zebra danio and a blue mystery snail. System is a 4 gallon biorb at 78*. I have checked all levels and pH with a quick dip test, everything looks fine.


Wanted to know what you guys thought. Here are some pictures of them. Please let me know what ya think. (And yes, I've quarantined them)

Your first photo is not showing the clear signs of NTD. Your second photo however does. Do you have any more photos please?

I've introduced API's Pimafix into their tank with an airline as well as some peas for them to try and eat? Was reading somewhere that this may fix constipation. So we'll see.
