hi there, had 5 neons for about 4 months now...

one of them about 3 months ago turned a darker colour than the others but was fine still feeding etc.. yesterday i noticed it was kinda floating with a bit of a tilt to one its kinda swimming all over the place upside down twirling.

ive put it in a quarantine tank with some aquarium salt...any ideas what this could be?

it also has what looks like scabs at the base of its tail

is it swim bladder? poss neon tetra disease

help...cant bear to see the little thing like this
