Unhappy This sucks!!!

Okay, so after an hour of researching hard trying to find out what on earth this is, i went to go check on em again. now all THREE tetras have it. but in different ways the two that had the worms; one of them has almost looking like 2 tiny bubbles attached close to their mouth. the other has a tiny bubble attched, but not as bad as the other. and the third i wasn't sure about earlier, now has a brown worm looking thing I'm so upset right now and i don't want any to die and esecially not my VT betta; who seems perfectly fine at the moment.

i'm literally tearing up because i'm in love with all types of animals, even the smallest.

First off get them out of that tank. Aquarium salt might help.
