    Recently my micky mouse platy has been acting very odd. She is pregnant and her belly is expanding in size. However, today she began to act 'drunk'. She seems to be very unaware and has been bumping into ornaments.
    Can someone help??

    I'm afraid we really need a lot more details of your set up before we can attempt to diagnose what might be going on with your fish.

    'Drunk' behaviour could have all sorts of causes.

    If you can post; the size of tank and a list of all the inhabitants, how long the tank's been set up, plus the results of any water tests you've done, that would all be of help to us.

    if she has stringy white poop and has stopped eating she is dieing, probably from TB. However, if she is eating and does not have stringy white poop, give her a few days and see how she goes. Make sure the water quality is good and the temperature is correct. Make sure no other fish are picking on her. If you can post a picture that might help.

    Don't worry everyone. Thank you for your contributions but she has settled down now!
    Just guess I'm a bit hasty
