What became of the leopard danios?
 
I never see leopard danios anymore, and have always loved them much more than the zebra danios, why are they never found in petstores anymore? I have not seen any for a good 5 years now...

The so-called Leopard Danio is actually a man-made variant of the Zebra Danio, and not a true wild species. I haven't noticed any in my area either, now I come to think of it. Maybe it just went out of fashion?

They are still very popular & plentiful here in Aust. and available in basically every LFS.
