Neon Tetras growing white bumps on mouth

Potato1

I have 10 Neon Tetras in my 20 gallon (76 Liter) tank, 3 seem to be normal and healthy, 6 have white bumps just above their lips and/or frayed/tattered fins and 1 today is lying on its side. The one on it's side can't swim up it is also very thin but it doesn't have a white bump. Does anyone know what is going on and how do I treat this? I currently have them separated in 3 plastic containers (healthy, white bumps and the one on its side). What should I do?

The neons usually live with other fish in my 20 gallon. I am putting the neons in a 3.5gal until I know exactly what to do.
