Platy getting picked on

The last post I made was about identifying my platies.
*(What type of Platy are these?)
The spotted mickey/ sunburst hybrid keeps getting picked on by the other 2 sunburst! How can I stop that? The hybrid is a male and the sunburst are male and female

Is he the fish that was having trouble at one point ? Unfortunately, tank mates will pick on individuals that appear weak. The solution is getting him out of the situation and into a better environment. Sounds like you're not in a position to do that now but, you might be in a position to add the plants we have mentioned. They will provide cover for him in addition to the other benefits that have been explained. There is absolutely no advantage to trying to complete a cycle with a basically fully stocked tank when you have sick fish.

yes that one. He stays under the filter all day just to get bothered. I don't have a ride to the pet shop, but the next time I go (which will be sometime this week or weekend) I will try to get one. For now when I see it happening too much, I put him in a critter kkeeper in the tank
