Neon Tetra disease?

One of my 4 neon tetras has this little tan dot on it's red stripe but it's nowhere else. It's pretty slow when it comes to staying with the school.. I'm just wondering if it's neon tetra disease or something else cuz I just noticed it maybe yesterday night.

I would continue to watch it or quarantine it....Pleistophora hyphessobryconis is usually first seen as a loss of red colouration in neons, followed by a failure to school, then swimming problems....your neons symptoms certainly sound suspicious. Just remember that this is a very easily transferrable disease, so the other fish may already be infected, so keep a close eye on them as well.

okay, I will. he does school it just takes him a while to figure out where they went >_< but then again, some of my other fish do that too but his tail is just making me curious. Is there anything I can do to try to get rid of it?

I have heard that a few people have had some success with Jungle parasite cure or Furan-2.

I would advise just to keep an eye on not only that tetra, but all fish in your tank seeing as this is a contagious disease. Here's an article that might help you learn a little more about this disease. http://freshaquarium.about.com/cs/di...eondisease.htm Hope your fish gets better, HTH
