Turn heat up to 86 f and add some salt. Also waterchanges and vacum gravel often. No meds should be needed, keep up heat and salt until 2 weeks after it goes away

The neons should , its a low dose of salt freshwater fish do fine in it , the snails might not, you can skip the salt just make sure the aeration is good because the higher temp lowers dissolved oxygen content.

Turn the heat up to 86-88F
Increase aeration
Increase gravel vacs and water changes
Leave the temp up for AT LEAST one week AFTER the last spot is seen

You/your friend can add 1 tablespoon of salt per 5 gallons of water. Dissolve it in a cup of tank water and add 1/4 of the dose every 6-12 hours until the full dose is reached. It's important to remember that salt is only removed by water changes.
You can use any salt that has NO iodine or anti-caking agents. Do not use marine salt (for SW tanks).
