>>>I would find it hard to believe either but what other reason could there
be in not providing females for sale, especially in fish that are not
significantly sexually dimorphic? <<<

I haven't looked carefully, but I have not seen this except in the fish that
were strongly dimorphic. Both genders of platies, swordtails, mollies, and
other gouramies seem to be available in comparable numbers. Or are they ?
