Breeders must of stopped buy em. i went to ever store with in a hugh distance from my house looking for a ST. There NO WHERE!!! and now most stores around me have ONLY CT. I found a pet smart 15 minutes away that has VT. but ever store has a bad selection it sucks! and at one of the stores when ever i get the fish there sick.

It's quite simple really.... they fell out of popularity.

I'm guessing they aren't as easy to propagate as VT and CT because both of those tail types are unpopular amongst breeders nowadays but the fact that they're still widely available means their must be something about them that attracts people whereas they weren't attracted by spades, or deltas which also used to be extremely popular.

Spades are common in VT and PK spawns. Crossing the two has also resulted in larger amounts of spade tails. The trait dosen't breed true.

Very nice. I'd pay $36 for him... I wonder how high he'll go.
