Help Hunchback Guppy

40 gallon Freshwater Established Guppy tank
nitrate - safe
nitrate - stress
water - very hard
alkalinity 225 ppm
ph 8

I noticed one of my Large male's looking like he had a curved spine about a week ago, then his fins clamped up and he just kind of swam slowly. He died the next day. I found Two of my large females dead yesterday, and another male is looking crooked with the clamped fins..

all other fish look fine.

I've seen this as birth defects in newborn livebearers. I do remember reading somewhere about tuberculosis in fish. I remember reading that some of the symptoms were as you described. I will reserch the subject and you may also.

Here is a ste that may be of interest:

First of all let me say thank you herefishy that link is awesome. I appreciate the help.
Update on the problem:
The male has now lost all color and is pretty lethargic, and he is red on his head and a little ways down his back. I have noticed that some of my other fish are reddish on their heads as well.
