My neon tetras have developed fin rot and now this morning I notice white on one of their mouth. My water was cycled prior to putting them in and parameters are ph 7.4, ammonia 0, nitrite 0, nitrates 10. I do weekly 20% water changes. I have them in a 55 gallon tank along with 4 angel fish, 6 kuhli loaches, 3 albino pleco. I'm wondering what can I use to clear this up without harming the other fish in particular the loaches. I do not have access to a quarantine tank at this time.

I'm in the process of escaping a planted 45 gallon I was going to put the tetras in but that wont nbe ready anytime soon

It sounds like your fish are definitely suffering from fin rot, and the white growth is a type of fungus. This is a sign of poor water quality. You need to up your water changes and do several deep gravel vacs. Treat the tank with Melafix and Pimafix and continue doing numerous 25-30% water changes every 2-3 days until it clears up.

I have sand which was just put in there a week prior to this starting. I keep the sand cleaned and have been doing 25% changes daily since noticing this 3 days ago
