Does My Fish Have Fin Rot???

    Two days ago I purchased two Platys into my 5-gallon tank so now I have a total of six fish (All the fish are Platys by the way). Everything seemed fine but now I think one of my fish now has fin rot. I'm not quite sure so I've uploaded some pictures. If you can't see the edges of her fin seem milky white, which I heard are the first signs of fin rot. If my Platy fish does have fin rot, is there anything I could do??

    Just realized I posted two of the same pictures, oops! Here is the other photo:

    Welcome to fishlore!

    I can't see any finrot from those picture.
    The best cure for finnrot is really clean water.

    Your tank is very overstocked. Platies need 10 gallons minimum but even in a 10 gallon I would have 3 or 4 platies maximum. If you have both genders they will breed quickly too.

    I'm pretty sure that's a boy BTW :)
