Neon tetra growth #1
Hi guys,

And nice to meet you since I am new to the forum! :)
Would really appreciate some input from you for one of my neon tetras. It has developed a red growth on its mouth (see picture attached). It has actually grown more within the last week.

I bought Melafix for bacterial infections but haven't seen any improvement in the last 3 days.

Have you come across anything like this before and do you have any advice?

Many thanks,

Re: Neon tetra growth #2
That looks more like some kind of tumour to me in which case there's nothing you can do. You may want to try either Esha 2000 or Waterlife Myxazin in case it's bacterial.
