NTD (Neon Tetra Disease) is not only known to infect tetras, but most other fish also. NTD was given the name, since it was one of the first fish that was recognized to have the fish.

Normal symptoms are loss of color, abnormal swimming and bend in the spine and maybe fin/tail rot, causing erratic swimming. Unfortunately, there are no known cures, other than euthanizing the fish. Since it can spread, it's best to isolate ANY/ALL fish that appear to show sign of illness.
