Is this play tb? I had 2 other platies that died months ago after looking the same way. I have treated the tank with general cure and for parasites. All my cories died but at different times and never seemed to have anything wrong with them (except one). Her and her baby are the only platies I have left and now she looks like this. I tested the water yesterday and ammonia and nitrites were 0 and nitrates were 5. I run 2 filters, it's a 29 long and I do weekly water changes. I also have 3 guppies and 6 glofish danios. I have had them for months and none of the danios have died. I have lost 2 guppies. I'm stumped is there aonethsom else I can test for or is it just something that happens to platies?

Okay, I thought that perhaps she was a Mickey Mouse platy. I can't see the spine so I can't comment on that. If you are thinking TB, she should be isolated in a hospital tank.

It doesn't have to be TB. Lots of fish issues will have a bent spine from nutritional issues to internal parasite.
Have you tried any treatments ?

What do you feed them?
Ya it does kind of look like TB....
Are they eating? normal poo? Wasting is a sign of TB...
