Mouth fungus.....?

Yesturday I got 5 neon tetras from Petco. They all died but one. Today I noticed that the survivor has a white splotch on top of him, so he is sick for sure. I gave him a little salt bath in a cup.

I justed noticed that my betta is not moving around the tank very much, is being pulled backward towards the filter, not eating, and has a white, crusty-looking bath.

I immediately put him in a 1/3 gallon bowl, and looked at neejar's thread for salt baths. Thank you neejar!

What should I get at the pet store tomorrow? I'm going to stop at Pet Supplies Plus, probably. If not, Petsmart. I just don't trust Petco anymore.

Also, what should I do with the corycats? Anything special I should do to them? They look fine.

I would do two days worth of salt baths. If the fish get better keep up with that, if they do not get better or look worse then get Jungle Fungus Guard.

I would not worry about treating the corys if they look healthy, but keep an eye on them.

I think any anti fugus medicine will do. But don't quote me on it, I've never had a fungus problem D:

[Edit:] *scratches out what she wrote* Listen to Neenjar lol

*Sniffle sniffle* I checked on him a few minutes ago, and he went to the big pond in the sky.

We love you Moonlight.

Also, I made a typo. I meant white, crusty-looking mouth.
