Exclamation lump on the belly

hi, Ive had a lot of sicknesses on my fish and now I have on witch the fish has a lump on its back
I have 3 neon tetras 2 rasboras and 1 guppy Manado substrate with plants (some from a wild lake) and some slate rocks
yesterday I saw that my guppy was acting odd its was hiding behind the rocks while the other fish were fine
next morning the guppy was sideways behind the rock I think the other fish were ok I was rushing because I had to go
I came home (evening) and I cant find the guppy (It is probably behind the rocks but i cant get there) and I can see one of my neon tetras has a lump on its belly and Its hiding behind the rocks

Hello, I am so sorry you did not receive a reply. How are your fish doing now?
In the future you can add another post if it is important and goes unnoticed, and just bump up your thread. Sometimes they just filter down and do not get seen. We try our best to answer threads in this section, but it is possible to miss them.

Depending on the type of rasbora, they may have had different requirements. Some rasboras need a lower PH. Guppies are tougher. Another alternative and a real nice fish are Endlers. good luck

caution

Be careful if fish died in your tank and you never found them, you might have high ammonia or nitrates. You should test your water. Dead fish, fish food, even plant leaves decompose in your tank and produce ammonia. Best wishes for you and your fish.
P.S. my best advice would be to do daily water changes (25-50%) until test results are stable- 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, ~10 nitrate. Your tank is not cycled tillyou are producing nitrate.
Best of luck to you

Oh yeah... plants from a natural lake might be the problem; they are probaly infested w parasites.
