Skinny minnow...help?!

Just came back from holiday to one of my WCMM all pale and thin?
All of my minnows have gone slightly paler and almost transparent at the spinal area.
Could this be a breeding generic deformity, or worse...disease?
No other fish (platys and panda cories) are showing any signs of colour, body or behaviour change.

Could it also be that my timer light wasn't working properly whilst away / being under fed?

When Neon I would say Pleistophora hyphessobryconis.
The blue stripe is glassy.
In T. albonubes it has also been observed.

Thanks Arthur. What should I do? Remove him? And what about the other fish?

Maybe it's something else. I hope.
Plistophora is not curable.
There are more each weeks, even if you sort out.
That's is a bump disease in the musculature.
I used sometimes many Neon that I wanted to sell, lost.

Skinny and bent spine are usually a sign of fish tuberculosis
