My platy has lost a bit of weight, his dorsal fin, and eats vigourously when he gets the chance, he is always in a corner and just swimming there. I have another platy, and she is fine, and plump, what is wrong with the other one? Please helP! Thanks

I agree with Shaunie, for that size of tank and the amount of fish you have in it, it sounds like someone is picking on him. Especially since you say he is still eating, but has missing finage and hangs around in a corner (trying to hide?) Many things can happen in your tank when you are not looking.....
