Is the scarlet badis a chiclid?

I've seen people call this fish a dwarf chiclid sometimes or even a labyrinth fish. Are either of these claims true? Is it even related to chiclids in some way?

So Scarlet Badis are Perciformes Badidae, and Bettas and Gourami are Perciformes Osphronemidae. Cichlids are Perciformes Cichlidae. So yes they are all related. They are however NOT the same.

All three groups do have neat behaviors that are similar as well.
