| || | Platy with Clamped Fins
I have three platy in my 29 gallon tank, along with some other inhabitants. My Mickey Mouse platy, whom I have had for about 7 months, has had clamped fins and is very wobbly. This has been happening for about a week and a half or so. Right after I first noticed this change I changed the water. She has a hard time eating because she can't swim fast enough to get food before the other fish (who are all healthy). She bobbles when she swims and when I first noticed her behavior change and after changing the water...for three days in a row when I turned the light on in the morning she was completely belly up on the bottom of the tank.
Since then she seems a little better, although it depends on the day. I had thought for sure that she was going to die, but she is still alive. She is still wobbly and I don't notice any physical signs of anything odd other than her swimming.
Any ideas what this is?
