Hello,
I have a female platy in my 29 gal community tank that seems to be sick. The water parameters are great and all other fish are healthy. She is eating and swimming around but looks very skinny and kind of curved. She also seems to be swimming with her body. One time she got near the filter intake and actually got stuck and immediately swam off of it..
Hopefully someone can help,
Thanks

I'm afraid the pictured Platy is a goner. She has some type of intestinal infection. Unknown if its bacterial or parasitic. Her stomach looks concave and the spine does look slightly bent; a bacterial infection symptom. IMO, best to remove the Platy asap as to avoid potential spreading of the illness.

This is unrelated to the platt, but bamboo under water will die

You can grow it in water but the area with leaves should be out of the water

That's a real shame.. Thanks for the help. How can I prevent this in the future?
