Are Dalmatians rare?

After looking through LittleBetta's thread, I decided that I would go on Aquabid and find some pretty Dalmatians to gawk at. But there were none. Not a single one.
Are Dalmatians that rare or difficult to breed? Are they undesirable? I think that they're beautiful. :3

I've always wondered this too. I've seen orange dalmatians on aquabid before but not often. I actually just got one not too long ago from a LPS. I didn't even realize he was a dalmatian until I got him home and his spots started developing! I saw another one today at petsmart too, but that's the only times I've ever seen the in stores. They're so beautiful, I wish there were more!

I know right! Seriously, I didn't even know that these guys existed until about a week ago. And they're nowhere!

They're the kind that are common in some places but rarer in others, I guess. I have an orange dal boy, Peaseblossom ... gotta admit he's one of my favourite bettas.

they're common in some areas, not in others. i've seen people get them easily at walmart. i've only seen 4 total at my lps in the last 6 years. x: my first betta was an orange dal. they're pretty uncommon on aquabid, because not alot of breeders wanna mess with the whole orange genetics, and combining red and not-red on the same fish.... x-X
