Exclamation Neon tetra Fungal or ?

Hi everybody,

I am having a bit of trouble here, as my Neon tetra - around 5 of them has white stuff on their body, I am sure it's not ich.

I've been using Pimafix and Melafix ( for 7 days, and now I have started to use them again, now it's up to the 3rd day), and keep maintaning the water in a good condition. I have also put them into a small tank and use Wardley Promethyasul for 2-3 days, as I see them not so happy there so I put them back (was few weeks ago.)

I was trying to take photos, but they move too quick...so here is the video...


I don't very know if it's fungal or not, they all active and seemed happy...it has been more than a month now..

Would be appreciate if anybody can help me out! Thank you!

If they've had it for a month, then it's not Neon Tetra Disease. That's a good thing. The fact that they are still eating is also a good thing.

Some bacterial infections can look like fungal infections. I would start treating with maracyn and maracyn II, to treat for gram positive and gram negative infections and see from there.

I just noticed that the video link is not likable - here is the link,

Neon tetra Problem - YouTube

I have plants in my tank - will the meds you've suggested above have impact on them?

The tail looks like nipping that's gotten infected. The other - I don't know.... a tumor? It's got some disfigurement - Were it mine, I would euthanize the fish.
