Thanks, Blu.

It must is a regional thing, but I find that that multicoloured VTs are a lot more common here:

My Walmart of all places carries an amazing stock of colors of VTs. I have thus far seen 3 multicolors, several reds and blues (naturally), 2 chocolates(including Natal, my chocolate dalmatian), 5 true cellophanes, 3 greens, a couple coppers, a yellow, an orange, an orange dalmatian, a red butterfly that was there when I rescued Natal, a couple grizzles, some cambodians, including a metallic cambodian, and a marble that I can remember
If they'd take care of their fish they'd have such a selection that I'd pick them over Petsmart!

I was informed at the meeting today that VTs are making a comeback. That made me very happy.

The butterfly pattern originated in veiltails and is still commonly seen even in chain store shipments. There are pictures of them all over the aquarium literature of the 1950s and 1960s.

If it's still commonly seen, it sure must not be in our regions...

How odd. I'm in the northeast and on my last trip to Petco there were at least a dozen butterfly veiltails in the shipment they just got in. Reds, blues, multis, cambodians--all veils, all butterflies. And as you can see from the photos on this site, folks are even finding them in Wallmart and other chains.
