HELP!....sick platy??

My usually voracious and active neon blue platy seems a bit off today. Didn't eat this morning and looks to have clamped fins. Isn't swimming as much either. Have a 20 gallon tank that is fully cycled. A=0, N2=0, N3=10. Last PWC/gravel vac was 4 days ago. Stocked with 4 panda corys and 3 platys. Also posted in the catfish area because one of my pandas hasn't seemed right for a couple days now. Wondering if the problem might be related?? Any suggestions on what could be wrong or for a course of treatment? Wanna keep this guys alive! Thanks!!

QUICK UPDATE
Seems as though whatever the problem was yesterday has been alleviated today. No clamped fins this morning and appetite is definitely back to normal. Activity level is back to usual too. I think maybe my male platy was just harassing her yesterday. Do I maybe need a third female? Thoughts?

Glad to hear she's doing OK. A good ratio for platys is 3 females for each male.

Thanks for the reply. Looks like I'll get another female platy as soon as I resolve whatever the issue with my panda cory is. Just want them all to be happy and healthy! Thanks again!
