I think a few of my neons have exactly that... it's just right at the end of the tail, white things sticking out on each side, before the fin.
Everything else about them seems great - healthy appetites, intelligent, agile, beautiful color.
I've been thinking maybe this is a reoccurance of NTD, but now that you mention it, my previous batch had large white splotches and patches all over their sides, and interruption of the blue stripe.
I'm definitely going to be checking out any possible responses here... I hope we can figure this mystery out. It might even be the same thing that has plagued my dwarf gourami's face, it looks the same, the little white pimply area, sometimes with red around the area on the Gourami. (Hard to tell since the neon's tails are naturally red.)
I'm almost positive it's not ich, since I've had that before.
EDIT: 12g, My parameters are 7.0-7.2 pH, 80ppm Soft (that's because I'm using bottled water mixture), 76-78 degrees, no ammonia or nitrites, 10-20ppm max NitrAtes. 50% water change 2x per week. Use a few tiny drops of Prime before adding back into tank. Fish are fed once sometimes twice, two small meals they consume in front of me, Tetramin color crisps. The dwarf gourami eats a big variety, but the neons don't eat anything that doesn't sink. Sometimes I can get them to eat vitamin pellets with garlic.
I'll try and take some photos tonight since I can usually get pretty close to my neons for photos.
