The columnaris bacteriastrain in neons appears to be quite species specific.
That is an advantage (other species are "safe") but the bad news is it is quite difficult to treat with meds. Even antibiotics seem not to have the wanted effect.
Try to provide them a stressless environment and clean water and see how things go. You're not the only one facing this recently. If fish get really bad I'd euthanise. Hoping things will get better.
