Platy Female Ill? Sick? Breathing Heavily
I currently have a ten gallon (37.8 L) with 2 female platies and 1 male platy. Today, my mickey mouse female platy have developed some symptons. First, she's constantly hiding, laying at the bottom, or when she does swim she swims for a little bit and goes back into hiding. She has been getting picked on by one of my female red wag platy. She also is starting to breathe heavily, she is eating though. My water parameters are normal, its ammonia 0, nitrite 0, nitrate 10, temperature is at 79 degrees Fareinheit (26.1 Celsius). So I don't know if I'm over reacting, but maybe she's hiding from getting bullied too much? Is there anything I can do, she has lots of hiding spots so maybe she's just not coming out because of the other female platy?
