Serpae Tetra Got White Lips

Anindya

Does this look like a cotton mouth? It’s been a week since a couple of serapaes have this kind of white lips. I am using API Melafix for last 7 days. The spot has not increased. No other behavioural problem. They are all eating eagerly and very active. What should I do?

I have only 8 serpae Tetras in my 20 gallon low tech planted.

Water temp. 24*C
Ph. 7.5
W/c twice a week
Gravel vac: religiously once a week.
Can’t test the water before Friday.

Looks like it might be cotton mouth as it is hard to see in the picture. And melafix usually does not work for cotton mouth even though it says it will. There was some sort of powder that I saw that cure it but I don’t remember the name,sorry
