Hi all, I have been into the hobby a year now and just recently joined the forum.

I have two tanks with tropical community aquariums.

Recently I noticed cotton mouth on one of the neons.

Anyone info on this would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the forum.
I don't know anything cotton mouth but interested to learn. From pictures I have seen online it looks like a fungus but I don't know. Just out of curiosity, can you put up a picture? There are so many different pictures on google. I hope someone can't help you out

If it's cotton mouth treat with Esha2000 if it's neon terra disease it can't be treated just take the fish out and put it to sleep. The neon terra disease looks like patches of white on the fish

Cotton mouth needs to be treated with a "fungal med"...

Neon Tetra disease looks nothing like a fungal infection...Its also known as saddle back because the fishes backs arch and develop a yellowey white patch...

If it is only one fish that is ill your best bet is to take it out and treat it seperately in a hospital tank...This eliminates any extra stress on the fish in question and also reduces the risk of any sketchy stuff spreading to the other fish...

By the way if your water quality isnt up to scratch and you arent carrying out regular decent sized weekly water changes you are just wasting your time with meds etc...

Fresh water fish need fresh water "WEEKLY" (average 50% change recommended / more if your tank is overstocked)

I do my water changes every week and maintenance too. I will take it out and move it to small tank to treat.

Thanks
