Water Vertebrate Koi Fin Fluid

Hello new to this forum not a beginner but not an expert fish keeper. I recently bought a group of Platy’s and of them has came down with this red coloring on the bottom; will attach pictures. Any help on what illness this might be would be appreciated.

Hello,

I can't see the mentioned red part at the bottom, can you please post a better picture or highlight in the picture itself?
If you are talking about the red gills on the top fish, check if the platies are gasping air from the top of the tank, if this is happening then check your ammonia levels in case there is some sort of ammonia poising in the tank

Regards

do you have a male? it could be that she is pregnant, but from the picture i think that it is probably some sort of poising or if she is gasping at the top of the tank it may be lack of air
