femkale platy not feeling well.
Hi guys. For the passed few days my tiny platy I got a few months ago all of a sudden does not feel well.......... She is very skinny, sits on the bottom and has white poop. Here are my water parameters for today..

Ammonia: 0
Nitrite: 0
Nitrate: 5.0

The thing is I don;t have a spear tank to treat her for internal parasites. She is in a 10 gallon divided tank with 4 cories and a betta. She won't eat her food today either. Can someone help?

im sorry i dont have a good answer for you but since noone has chimed in, i will. i had a female panda platy that did same thing. non active, stay on bottom, skinny, spits food out. i treated her with maracyn and lifegaurd all in one treatment and it did nothing. she died after 2 weeks. if you dont get answer here i suggest you google your symptoms and research it. is there a non chain pet store near you that you could ask? the chain stores probably wont be able to help. good luck and research research research.

Sounds like internal parasites.
I'd get a plastic tub to treat her in, might as well go full force with the medication (which the cories probably won't tolerate).

Unfortunately she has past away last month. I tried everything I can to save her..
