Flashing Platy

I think I am using the right terminology if flashing means rubbing against things. She is pregnant and is rubbing against the air tube to my undergravel filter. Right now her fins are clamped to I don't see any flecks or any sign of discoloration. Anyone know whats going on?

Often rubbing on surfaces and clamped fins can be a sign of parasites. Can't be sure though.

Sounds like what mine were doing when they had worms, take a close look at them and see if you can see any foreign bodies attached to them

I don't see any outer parasites nor any sign of ick and I'm worried about treating because I just got a baby dwarf puffer and they are supposedly very sensitive to meds
