So my newest Platy (Bellatrix) has been behaving strangely all day. She's been hanging out at one corner of the tank near the top just kind of chilling there. Her dorsal fin isn't clamped or anything but she's not swimming much. I'm just a little nervous since I've only had her since Thursday. She is sitting right in the current of my filter so I'm wondering if maybe she's a little shy, or just enjoys the current. Anyone else have a platy that isn't all over the tank? I've never seen that before in Platys, except when my last one wasn't feeling so good. She isn't gasping for air, and all of the other fish are behaving normal, if not even more active. The tank currently has had safe start in it for a week today, and had been cycled previously though the cycle was pretty messed up after medicating for ich. I checked the levels on Thursday and they were all wacky due to TSS today they read Ammonia 0, nitrite, 0 nitrate 10-20ppm (somewhere in the middle). Looks like TSS has finished cycling the tank but I'll probably wait till Tuesday/ Wed to do a water change to be sure. Anyhow, while I was checking the water just now Bella swam about but is now back to her little spot. Any ideas?
