Re: Please help platy tumbling and swimming vertical #1
Hello thanks again for getting back to me,

One of my other fish had a bacteria issue so I had already treated with a broad range gram negative and gram positive bacteria treatment and it didn't help him at all

The other platy had yellow gills and was breathing really quick, he settled after this but there is still yellow on his gills, he is now swimming around fine and eating well.

I had used esha 2000 along with esha exit about 4 weeks ago, extended dose but it didn't sort him out

That was before the bacteria treatment, I don't want to overdose on medications, but the increased water changes hadn't been working.

Is this maybe related and is there anything else I could do

I feel like I'm doing something wrong and he is ill due to me

Re: Please help platy tumbling and swimming vertical #2
Hi thanks for replying to me, he hasn't been pooping much but when he is it is normally formed and no white bits, however saying that I did notice that every now and then some of them would have white stringy poop

If it is a parasite which one could it be?

Please help platy tumbling and swimming vertical #3
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.
