Question Female Platy Died?

Okay so I got 2 platies to add to my 10 gal. soroity a long time ago and for a few weeks one of them started chasing and nipping the scales off the other. The one being nipped died a while ago and I just researched and found out I had a male and a female. It was the male biting the female's scales off and the female's empty scale spot is faint white.

Two platies are going to overcrowd the 10 g. You also would need at least 2 females to every male you had. It's easy to sex them. The female most likely died from over-bullying.
You kind of just answered your own question, haha.

Just because I don't type with candy and rainbows doesn't mean I'm being mean.
My opinions are based on research and experience. Ask for help!
