platy looks crooked
 
Help, my platies look like they are having trouble swimming straight.http://www.fishlore.com/fishforum/im...s/dontknow.gif They are turning sideways and look a little crooked and the 2 that I am sure are females are trying to nip at each other. Like their heads are going one way and the body is going another.http://www.fishlore.com/fishforum/im...s/dontknow.gif The male just looks fat. My water params are 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, 10 nitrate, just did my routine water change sat of about 20-30%. Any suggestions!!!!

How long have you had the platies? Do they truly look crooked? Or do they just swim crooked? I have noticed that occasionally after a livebearer gives birth its spine becomes slightly arched for a couple of days. They usually turn out fine.

I've had them for a couple of weeks. Today so far they look fine. If either of them dropped any fry I have not found any. Last night it looked like they could not get their balance together..........

I am keeping a close eye on them. Thanks much
