    Okay so i noticed one of my mickeymouse platys was sat on the bottom, up until this morning everything was fine seemed normal but all of a sudden ive noticed its changed in colour, water testing shows up fine, no other fish affected in tank, the mickey mouse has now been taken out and put into a 12 litre quarantine tank and being treated for finrot and bacterial infection (as its the only medicine i had readily to hand) okay so stats and pics below

    Ammonia - 0
    Nitrite - 0
    Nitrate - 20

    Have her gills always been red? It may just be her coloration that allows you to see the redness.

    No, her body was a beautiful blue and never saw any redness previously, there is another 2 and i cannot see any redness with them, even when i tried catching her shes didnt even attempt to swim away

    I guess keep treatment going and see if it effects them at all, hopefully i don't lose her
