It would be impossible to list ALL strains of Fancy Swordtail/ Platy. First there are so many and second (Many of them have many different common names for the same strain) Sometimes a new/ different name is put on an existing strain to help sell it as a "New" strain, sometimes it's done out of ignorance (A breeder not knowing the name and putting a name on it).
I always suggest (Enjoy your Modern Swordtails and Platys) even though it's a small booklet, long out of print, Dr Joanne Norton lists the original basic common names and what they look like. Try to locate this book.
