I have only found this coloration at Walmart :(. Tried doing searches for Blue Tuxedo.... have found one image close to this and it was called a Blue Neon..... is this coloration not very popular or is it considered unfavorable?

Your link doesn't work, so I can't look at what you are showing. I have seen blue platys of various types in photos, but I have yet to see one in person, at several local pet stores. Good luck finding any.

actually my fish have clear fins with black around the edges. their bodies are blue with the black tuxedo markings on the sides and white bellies.
