    Ok I'm new to this forum but looking for some advice please as other forums have just kind of ignored my plea for help!

    I have a poorly platy, everything has been fine up until this morning where he's just started swimming erratically and kinda doing back flips and all sorts. All my others seen fine except this little guy.

    I've moved him into my other tank because he just kept swimming into things mid flip. So there's less for him to hurt himself on, and if it is something serious my others will hopefully not be affected.

    He's been eating perfectly fine, pooing regularly, swimming fine. Nothing has changed in the tank, no new fish or decorations. Did a 20% water change 2 days ago, and have done another today purely because of him.

    My tank is 40L freshwater it's been set up about 2 years now, I have 4 platys.
    pH 7.6
    Ammonia 0
    Nitrites 0.25
    Nitrates 20

    I don't know if I need to supply any more information. I also have a video to show exactly what is wrong...

    Any help or advice would be great thanks!
