    I would say it is. Platy's are sometimes called "moons"

    Agreed. That's a beautiful platy with at least some Orange Platy blood in it. I have a similar one though mine only has a while face.

    To me it looks like your fish has a small amount of fin rot on the tail, more water changes than usual will fix it, no need for medication :)
