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.

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.
