 I  had  visited  Kolathur,  Chennai  last  week  and  was  searching  for  fancy  swordtails  (lyre  or  sailfins  etc).  Imagine  my  suprise,  when  I  was  unable  to  find  even  1  shop  that  was  selling  even  the  normal  swords  (let  alone  fancy  ones).
 
 When  I  asked  one  of  the  shopkeepers,  they  said  that  no  one  was  currently  intersted.
 
 I  found  shops  filled  with  Discus,  Arowanas  and  all  kinds  of  imported  fisheds.  But  no  good  livebearers  except  mollys  and  platys.  (not  even  nice  guppies).
 
 Maybe  it  was  just  that  I  visited  on  a  bad  day  (happens  as  the  stock  get  rotated),  but  wanted  to  also  get  some  general  opinions.  Are  live  bearers  like  Swords,  which  were  the  core  of  the  hobby  (when  I  started  out)  not  in  fashion  anymore??Shocked
   
 Rgds,
 Anand

 I  don't  know  about  fashion  but  they  are  certainly  one  of  the  best  live  bearers  whether  you're  a  beginner  or  not.  Absolutely  thrilling  to  see  the  range  of  swords  on  the  males  and  the  growth,  colour/sword  to  body  ratio  etc.  I  see  different  strains  of  them  here  in  London  often  including  the  Mountain  Swords  (Xiphophorus  alverezi)  which  always  refresh  memories  of  early  hobby  days.  Very  lively  livebearers  these!   Smile

 The  only  fish  whose  male  members  can  swim  in  reverse  at  equal  ease  -  courting  dances  are  way  more  interesting  than  the  other  livebearers.

 finally  an  interesting  thread.  i  was  thinking  the  same  the  other  day.  Besides  swordtails  one  can  hardly  see  Pearl  Gouramis  in  Bombay  anymore.  Or  maybe  i  haven't  noticed.

 From  the  response,  I  see  there  are  people  still  interested  in  swords,  but  when  I  started,  Molleies,  Guppies  and  swords  were  the  first  fishes  you  bought  (they  were  cheap  and  relatively  hardy   Very Happy  )
 
 But  now  it  seems  to  be  more  like  specialist  fishes  only  and  the  common  starter  fishes  are  not  easy  to  find..  That  was  very  suprising  for  me.  I  wonder  what  do  the  new  fish  keeper  start  with  nowadays?

 Generally  shopkeeper  sell  fishes  which  are  higher  on  price.
 As  you  know  the  live  bearer  except  exotic  guppies  like  moscow  blue,  german  red  are  not  that  much  profitable  to  the  shopkeeper.
 So  they  do  not  keep  most  of  the  times  but  when  you  visit  to  kurla,  there  definitely  you  can  see  them.
