White Cloud Mountain Minnow with red mouth.

Hey guys. It has been about 3 days since I got my 6 White Cloud Mountain Minnows. They all seemed to be doing fine except for one. This one is moving a little slower than the rest it seems to move by jigling and not really how the other fish move. He/she still eats but it's kind of weird it looks like someone put bright red lipstick on the fish?
What is this? What should I do?
PLEASE HELP!
THANKS!

As stated before, you need to qt these fish. I have a feeling it has a bacterial infection that if not treated, can take down the rest of your fish.

my ammonia is 0.25ppm and just out of maybe pure coincidence, about 5 mins after I made this post, most of the once active fish, are just hiding and swimming still behind my Rotala maybe it will pass in a couple mins i hope so.
THANKS!
