Just a couple of things for your water parameters ammonia and nitrite should be 0, with a reading of nitrates 20 or below. What type of test kit are you using? Also the other thing is that the temp of your tank is a little on the high side. Do you have your heater set to this temp, or is it this warm because of the temp of the room? If you have your heater set this high you will want to lower it, platys actually appreciate water that is just a tad cooler than what it is now. In the profiles here 76 is the max temp on these guys. Warmer temps will be okay for short periods of time, like in the summer when the outside temps are high, a few weeks. But you do not want to keep them at this temp for long term, higher temps will actually shorten the lifespan of your fish.
