Please I need help

Hi, I have a 10 gallon planted aquarium tank i have setup for a about a year. Its currently stocked with one goldfish, some neon tetras and two nertie snails. I've noticed recently on two of the neon tetra a white growth on its mouth. I've starting setting up a hospital tank a few days ago. It's a 10 gallon tank and I've sterilized a few decorations for them to hide. I've also added a small mesh bag filled with substrate from the main aquarium. Added a heater as well as a sponge filter I've had sitting in the main tank to fill with beneficial bacteria. I've haven't added the neon tetras to there hospital tank yet. I was going to treat them with aquarium salt. Would love to hear some ideas what could possibly be going on, and what i can do to help out the little neon tetras?

A 10 gallon tank is too small for a goldfish, they have a good amount of ammonia produced.

What are your water parameters?






The link article in my signature has some good information for fish keeping and the nitrification cycle. There are links for more useful articles too.
