Default Which variants are your best sellers?

After several years of keeping tropheus, I'm finally settling in and my groups are producing fry steadily. I'm planning on bringing them to a LFS for store credit as I don't live in a troph hot spot. I see some groups sit in the LFS for quite sometime so I'm hoping to avoid adding to that issue. I'm currently producing moop and dub fry and hoping my Illangi will start up soon.

I know there's folks here that produce a lot more fry than me, so I'm wondering which variants are the easiest to sell for you? Red Rainbows seem to be as popular as ever and Duboisi are hitting the fish list in my area less it seems. For my next group, I'm leaning towards "Bulu Point", "Kiriza" or "Namansi Red".

I cannot produce enough Trophs and they sell quite easily, Dubs, Ikola, Pemba, Illangi, but then again, I learned how easy it is to ship and thus ship coast to coast at buyers expense, why people don't take the time to learn to ship is beyond me, they can keep relying on their local market, better for me

I just don't have the time to ship, plus I live pretty rural. If I do find more time for my trophs I'd probably spend it on maintaining another tank or two.

Your variants are kind of what I think are some of the bigger sellers. What variant would you purchase next?
