HELP! Female platy fish sick but I don’t know what it is

Platyfishwoo

I have had my female platy Dora for about 3 months now.

She was all good at first but over the last few weeks I’ve noticed her top fin looking weird, almost like it was going transparent.

I’ve also noticed she’s very skinny (she’s a sunset so maybe just the type?) compared to my other females that are quickly our growing her.

Over the last week she’s been hiding more. She is still active most of the time but today I noticed she would get a piece of food in her mouth and immediately spit it back out.

Her fins are also clamped a lot of the time. My water parameters are fine. 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite and nitrate 10

I have 3 female platy in a 65L tank and I’m fairly sure she isn’t pregnant.



I have attached photos to help

Does sound like a stressed fish. If sick, could be anything, really.

My best advice is keep an eye on all the fish for anyone else with clamped fins, fraying fins, etc. and try doing a salt treatment for the moment. That's something that won't hurt the other fish even if they're well and should help until you see something more conclusive. Others here might have a better idea but that's where I'd start
