Cramped fin - is she sick?

peste999

Hi, one female of my sunburst platies had fins cramped. Refer to the pictures.
She is relatively active, moving around different areas of the tank, 20 gallon long tank, picking up things to eat.

Can I hear your opinion on whether she has a underlying disease or something?

I don't think there's anything wrong with her. It looks like she is pretty darn close to giving birth though, and as a result, is probably just really stressed. I don't think it's anything to get too concerned over.

Oh, I am so relieved to hear that.
Thanks a lot. :)

Glad to help, but just to be sure, what are your water parameters?
This morning.
Ammonia : 0 ppm
Nitrite : 0 ppm
Nitrate : 10 ppm
PH : 7.6 (7.8?)

Oh ok, I wouldn't worry then. Get ready for some fry!
