Default Guppy Clamped Fins

Male guppy has been clamping fins for several days. Seems to feed normally. Swim freely around the tank. Tested water, no problems. All other fish seem normal. Guppy shows no other sign of injury, trauma, etc.
What's up?

If the temp, ph, ammonia, nitrate, and nitrate are as good as you say, there is little you can do until the fish actually shows a disease symptom...Clamped fins is a symptom of stress, so look for things that might be bothering the fish.
I got off the porch and ran with the big dogs. Now I can't get back on the porch!

I'd have to agree with Dano and say this could only be from stress. How large is your tank in gallons? What tankmates and how many of each do you have? If you have too many for that tank size, that might be the reason.
10 gallon: Female Cambodian Betta, 2 cories
20 gallon: planning to put some livebearers
Outside Pond: empty for the winter
