Please help platy tumbling and swimming vertical

Subject: Please help platy tumbling and swimming vertical

Hello everyone, I'm new here and not long into fish keeping and I am desperate for help and advice

one of platy is was doing what u can only describe as somersaults and is swimming vertical as in head up, I have tried the pea method and some brine shrimp in case of swim bladder but no help.


When I do a water change he seems to be worse for a while and then just goes back to the vertical swimming thing, he is still eating which is a good sign I guess.


Any suggestions what this could be?, he has no marks on his body that I see

Anything else you need to know just ask

87 litre tank, running a year, fluval 206 filter, ammonia 0, nitrite 0, nitrates 20, gh 17, kh 12.

I have 5 platy, 7 white cloud mountain minnows and cherry shrimp.
