Ok so I had my 2 platys in a 30 gallon tank for a little while now. I added 6 zebra danios last night and this morning my platy was nowhere to be found until i saw it laying on the floor close to 2 feet away from the tank, any idea why this happened...... If it means anything he would always swim up and down the side of the tank for hours

The water is almost perfect but I have never heard of platys being known for jumping..... He did seem kind of annoyed by the danios though... I though he might have thought there was more water outside the tank and was trying to get away from them

It's possible the addition of the danios with their high activity level stressed him out or they harassed him.
Some fish are prone to jumping but tbh I've not heard of platys being one of them.

I heard swimming up and down the glass was them trying to expand their territory and I though maybe that's why he jumped
