listless platy problem

I have one female platy that has been behaving strangely for the last week or so. She constantly lies on the bottom of the tank, often in the grass or under the log, but sometimes just in the middle of the gravel. She only swims around when I feed them, but really not much even then. I can't see that anything is physically wrong with her, but she wasn't always this way so I'm thinking something definitely has to be wrong. None of the other fish in my tank have behaved this way. Please help!

Can you please help us to help you by posting stats about her tank? Size, temp, water test results for ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, pH, maintenance schedule/routine, feeding schedule and foods, tank mates (what species and how many of each species), etc. ?

The more information you can provide us the faster we are able to help you.
