White Coloration On Neons Dorsal Fin?

    He is swimming normally, but his secondary dorsal fin has this strange white coloration to it, what could it be? None of the other neons have this, and he is behaving normally. Help! (Sorry for potato Quality)

    I'm sorry your fish is having an issue! What size tank is he in? Do you have a water test kit and if so, what are your water parameters? What are his tank mates? From the pic, my initial guess would be fin rot but it is difficult to tell for sure.

    I can't see it on the pic but neons CAN show white edges on their dorsal when healthy and happy.

    It's the tiny second dorsal fin towards the tail that is white

    The adipose fin in neons (and cardinals) can be white as well hahaha. Personally I think it is natural. Most "infections" will earlier be on the dorsal fin as well
