@GaryE laments the passing of Xiphophorus maculatus , the original Wild Platy's . I search in vain for the original wild type Aplocheilus lineatus. The Killifish and Livebearer associations both have conservation committees that promote the keeping and captive breeding of endangered species. Their efforts have proved both fruitful and futile. Sports that would never survive in the wild are now prevalent while native fish are threatened or extinct . Some have never been seen in the hobby by the new generation of aquarists. If you find these rarities buy them and breed them and pass them around.
