O.o seems like the design must have come out somehow rather than selective breeding. Seems like it'd be very hard to get a perfect design on the end part of the platy... never seen a wild platy maybe it's naturally there?
But umm I think there's gotta be a different way than just selective breeding? :X Well actually I still have no clue how they make different guppies colors so I guess it's possiblee...
Not sure but this looks like a somewhat wild platy: http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:e.../assets/pp.jpg
The two spots might have just come from the wild platy... maybe to look like eyes for preditors? And then they just went from there? Alsooo, the breeders should do something with the strips and spots! they would make for some cool looking platies!!!
