Symptoms and Treatment
How has your fish's appearance changed? Not at all.

When did you start noticing the symptoms? Yesterday morning.
Have you started treating your fish? If so, how? No.
Does your fish have any history of being ill? No.
How old is your fish (approximately)? I bought her in June, and she was fully grown.
This tank DID have a case of suspected TB in a male guppy in May, and I have had no problems since.

That's it for my adult female platy.

I had another question. I have about 12 play fry left, and I think 4 of them are deformed (bent backs). What do you think I should do with them? I can't keep them in the 10 gallon forever as it is alreay over-stocked, and I'd like to keep the Large KK 10 of he fry are in to stay as a hospital tank. Some of the non-deformed fry will be leaving soon.

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

The deformed fry you can adopt out or just keep in a separate tank a really small one.
