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.

well that stinks that the link don't work.... it is from the pics on the Profile page for Platy on this site.

Are you talking about the one that is blue with black fins?

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.

I have some that are blue too, some with very clear micky mouse, the sheen color on top, tummy white-ish, high finned, and their fins are actually red, dont actually know their color pattern names
