I just got these from Petco 2 days ago and today two of the diamond tetras are showing a small white spot on their mouth that wasn't there before.

29 gallon tank.
0 ammonia
0 nitrite
Havent checked nitrates

Current stocking includes 1 betta and four diamond tetras. Tank was setup about a month ago. I'm relatively new to all of this and one small change in the fish appearance or behavior makes me worried.

The white spot is unfortunately still on the lip. I'm thinking of just doing a salt bath with the infected fish. Would that be an okay step to take?
