I added 3 platies to my betta tank 2 days ago and they seem to get along fine but i've noticed today that there's one platy who is always separated from the others and stay in my ornament (see picture below). Do you guys know why my platy might be doing this? It is a male so i dont think it's a pregnancy thing and also do you know what kind of platy it might be?
Here he is hiding in this most of the time, could it be he's scared of the betta?
In my experience, platties do this when they are not feeling well. Keep a close eye on him; maybe move the decorations around. It may be that this was the only territory he was able to claim as his own. I know one of my females did this both when I added my betta to their tank and then again when she contracted dropsy.
Canadian guy yayyy!!!! :D And yeah now he seems to have joined back the pack and swims with them. My betta only chases them and attack them when it's feeding time because they take his food away from him
yup outcast died. i did a 50% water change he got ammonia poisoning, his body was red at some places!
and i had 2 females and 1 male until one of them died. I'll confirm which one died tomorrow but i think its a female
