Did i get a pair?

Not the best pics I know, but did I manage a pair of scarlet badis? I hope the male gets more color.

It appears that you have a pair. Hope you are prepared to feed them properly. Mine will only take live food. Everything else is ignored. Once they begin feeding, the male will color up.

Here is another pick of the "female". I picked a male that had a full belly so I was sure he was eating at the store. I also picked the most drab but most active "female". He looked so female at the store but more time at home has me wondering. This group had been there for 2-3 months already also. I picked up frozen daphnia and the store said they were also feeding black worms but the worms were big and it was "funny" to see them eating it. Going to see about getting smaller worms. I don't know if this tank is big enough to occupy 2 males. It's a 9 gallon eheim. Lots of little places to hide though.

pretty sure now that they are both male. so now I have an ok male and a pretty drab male and can't put any females in. I'd have to add 3-4 girls and its only a 9 gal. oh well

You can definitely add the females into that tank, provided you can get your hands on some.

Hmmm, maybe it is a pair. ?? I don't know, the "male" keeps coming over, turning around and touching tails. No sure if it's aggression or display. She swims away after a few seconds and he give chase. Then they start again.

That sounds like a dominance display to me
