Only have one cardinal tetra that shows them.

How can i cure it? Also have RSC, dwarf gourmi and cories in the tank (and a GBR).
I know the first three can make medication difficult.

Thanks!
Seems there is not really a cure for it?
Just placed the cardinal in quarantine.
But hope the remaining 15 will not also get it (so far he is the only one).

So this seems to be fungi related and not a worm.

Should i add anti fungi medication to the quarantine or not?

Untreatable and not curable to my knowledge.
It really is a strange "thing" occuring in most cases at cardinals and black neons.
