Re: Is there anything i can do for my tetra?
There's no cure to NTD(Neon Tetra Disease). It is possible you have misdiagnose the disease for NTD and could be possibly columnaris which is the false NTD but the true NTD appears to be cream in color(the patch where the colors are deleted ).

What tetras do you have?
If you suspect NTD, the only way to prevent transmission to other fish is isolation for further observation and if found to be afflicted with the true NTD, euthanization eventually becomes the answer.
Try to look for these symptoms:
1. Restlessness at night...the 'afflicted' fish swims restlessly and away from the group(which are mostly inactive or still in movement).
2. Curved spine
3. White(A bit like cream) patch on the body..the colors of the fish appear to have been deleted. This is usually starts on the midsection of the body.
4. Erratic swimming...fish appears to swim as if it was getting stiff or paralyzed.
