Where is the platy from this post?

"Hi there!

I've got a Platy whose poo is always white, since I first got her 3 weeks ago. She spends quite a lot of time at the surface but other than that she seems to be acting normally."

Do you know anyone with a mature tank who can donate a bit of filter media?
Other than that, it's possible that even with hard water, the carbonate hardness is low so try adding a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda.
