>>>I know that for a long time only male blue or red crayfish were being sold

so no one could breed them and undersell the people who were breeding

That might be true with a specialty item like crayfish, but the overwhelming
majority of customers likely to breed guppies are home aquarists and teachers
with a few small tanks. The likelihood that they could cost-effectively
produce and distribute a sufficient number of fish to significantly undercut
established breeders is hard for me to imagine.
