    Hey,
    I’ve recently started up a 22l tank and after a steep learning curve decided I was ready to add 2 new Platy to the tank yesterday.
    They seemed in good spirits and settled well yesterday and looked good throughout the day but over the last few hours one of them has developed this strange looking red spiral thing from her anus. Can anyone help please? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Her anus has prolapsed. Intestines are protruding. Take her back to the fish store. I’m so sorry but nothing you can do.

    Well that’s a bit gutting. Is there something I’ve done which has caused it or just bad luck for the fish?
    I’ll take her back tomorrow.

    I don't think there’s anything that you did wrong. Probably already issues and stress of moving probably kicked it on. Good luck!
