Are Dalmation Platies rare?

We just got a new shipment of assorted platies. Among our shipment are a few Dalmation platies. Just wondering if they would be a good investment. I guess I look for any excuse to buy a new fish. Walmart platies.

I doubt any platy will make you rich and famous... And if walmart is selling them, I doubt they are rare. Just might be uncommon for chain fish stores to stock them exclusively.

For example, I have a half blue, half red-orange platy. I never see these at petsmart, because they just don't stock them. But you see them in assorted platy tanks at other fish stores sometimes.... doesn't make them rare...

The platy you described sounds beautiful. I wish I could see it. I was thinking I would like to get a Dalmation platy. But I noticed they have a translucent look. I dont like that too much. The blue and orange sounds neat. Maybe I could try and breed for that color.
