Odd looking thing on tetra
Fairly new to keeping fish. Found this odd looking thing on my tetra.
Could any help diagnose it please.

I'm inexperienced but looks like maybe a fungus? A couple of my blood fins have something like that on their lower lip but it doesn't stop them from eating and they have never acted sick so I've just left it alone, although they are much smaller then in the picture.20 gallon tall: empty
29 gallon: moderately planted with 9 bloodfin tetra, 1 german blue ram, 11 glow light tetra and 1 BNP
10 gallon QT: empty

is it perfectly round?
What other fish do you have in the tank?
I have corydoras catfish in my tank and when they spawn they stick adhesive eggs to the sides of the tank. The other fish immediately eat the eggs and sometimes they wind up with an egg or two stuck to their noses for a while.300 gallon mega tank: sailfin pleco, clown loaches, silver dollars, roseline sharks, congo tetras, new world cichlids
125 gallon office tank: Africian cichlids, synodontis catfih
75 gallon community tank: bolivian rams, black skirt tetras, dwarf neon rainbowfish, corys, harlequin rasboras, otos, bristlenose and bulldog plecos, assassin snails, various shrimp
60 gallon goldfish tank: fancy goldfish
