Unhappy Neon Tetra with a Hernia?

Hi All!

Today I noticed that my oldest and largest neon tetra has a reddish sack protruding from between his/her pelvic fins. The fish is acting very healthy and normal - eating, swimming, etc. I've confined him/her to a large fishbowl in case this could potentially harm the other fish.

Any one ever seen or heard of something like this?

Thank you!!!

Wow, I don't know what that is. Have you googled internal parasites? Or just parasites on fish? Check out some pics, and see if it looks like anything it has.
Sorry for the late response!
