Did you take the previous advice and treat the tetra disease?
If so what did you do?

No, I haven't had the money to do anything >_< and my hospital tank is being used up by my danio

And I'm not exactly sure if it IS neon tetra disease, I'm just curious if like it's common for one to have like an open mouth like that, it's just creepy.

I don't know whether to put it down or what ._.

The lady at petsmart told me to try Marcel Two, which I told her I had but I don't think that'll help much I'll have to wait to til tomorrow to quarentine it.

there is no known cure for NTD.. is it in a tank with other neons? it should be quarantined if possible, to help prevent spreading it.

Yeah I know about it but I'm not even sure if that's what it is, but even though it's uncureable should I let it live or what? It lives with all my other fish but I can't take it out until I take my danio out tomorrow.

....If it is neon tetra disease, and it is incurable, I feel bad quarentining a community fish for the rest of it's life because it's sick.

I would feel better about that then letting the rest of my fish get sick..
And putting the fish down is an option if your positive that NTD is the problem.
You can QT the fish until your absolutely certain that NTD is the problem.
