Because they are so common. They also aren't recognized as showable by the IBC so a lot of people don't bother with them anymore. A while back Aquastar71 was putting out some gorgeous fancies on there, they were selling really fast but he stopped out of the blue. Not sure why.
CT's have dwindled a lot too. I think it's because there aren't many breeders that really care for them and everyone is in a fancy crazy right now, and since HMs, HMPKs, and DT's have more fancy patterns on them already, it's easier for people to work with than trying to start their own fancy line from scratch.
none of this information is factual, just my hypothesis
