Platy swim issue

UnknownUser

Well, my new platy seems to be having issues. Been in my tank for probably a week or so. Acting completely fine. 10 minutes ago I catch her just at the surface. Not gulping, just sitting at the surface not really swimming. I get her to move and she goes to the bottom. She hasn’t been fed today, and isn’t bloated. She’s barely moving. I turned off the filter and air stone to see if no current would help; it didn’t. She’s still not moving much, at the top. Any opinions?

Sorry, forgot to add my ammonia 0, nitrites 0, nitrates around 10, temp 78

Are there other fish in the tank possibly harassing her?

No, the guppy flirts with both my female platys equally, but he isn't aggressive about it. My female platy leaves her completely alone

When she did swim, it looked like she was drunk.

She is holding her tail up for some reason if that matters at all.

She found my floating anubias and is just resting on it like it's a raft.
