How many danios do you have?
If they are kept in sufficient numbers then fin-nipping cases could be lessened.

And how large is your tank?

Oh it's actually quite small for the danios. They swim a lot and need a lot of space. And they do better in groups not less than 6. But I guess you can't add anymore, but this mainly depends on your filtration or if your tank is planted.

I suggest replacing the platies with more danios, but it's just a suggestion

That's what some LFS would say

You still have to research for your own and for your fish
