Overhere some nice looking dumbo (also known as big ear and elephant ear) dragon guppies. They do cost a bit more than an average commercial fancy guppy. But they're worth to keep.

The name dumbo, big ear and elephant ear refers to the large pectoral fins they have.
These male dumbo's that are swimming overhere do have beautiful large dorsals.

Well, dumbo guppies have become commercial guppies. There are several varieties of dumbo guppies. But yes, not all stores do sell them. In general they do cost a bit more than a regular commercial guppy. So, not everyone is willing to pay a higher price for a guppy.
Yes, the last picture shows a female.
I had some of these they were dumbo mosaic
They died off within 1 week
Well, they probably were not that strong, I assume... Sorry to hear...
