As usual start with water parameters. I assume all the other fish are acting normally though?
He didn't really look like he was moving unusually or anything from the video (besides hiding). Is it possible he's getting picked on by another fish and is just hiding? Or is he the only platty? I haven't kept them but I thought I remembered reading that they liked being in groups? If so he could just be hiding because he doesn't feel secure?
