here's a better photo of them out and about. they're a lot less shy than yesterday and they love to swim in and out of my tiki. but perhaps now you more experienced badis keepers are better able to tell the gender of the small one?

another thing i want to address is that they didn't take my daphnia, flakes, or pellets. i have freeze-dried blood worms but i heard that they shouldn't be a staple diet. they're always picking stuff off of various decor, plants, and glass though. are they known to just live off microscopic things?

Nice pics, and I still think you have a M/F pair. I was doing a lot of browsing and reading last night, males seem to be similarly colored but not all females look the same.

Not to hijack your thread but this is a pic of my two taken last night. There was even some spawning behavior going on-big surprise to me!-so I'm sure I have a pair.

Is your pair living with anything else?

I haven't actually seen mine eat. There are RCS in the tank, even some shrimplets so I assume they're picking at biofilm. Or maybe tinier shrimplets.

How large are yours?

the male is about 7/8 inches and the other is a little more than half an inch, probably 3/4 inches. they currently live with an inquisitive blue betta. he showed no aggression and each species keeps to his/her own

They are little hunters and will chase down little shrimp. When I had mine she would get right up next to the adult female shrimp and make jumping motions towards her, shrimp would do a little ballet dance away and no problems. But I didn't see more than an occasional baby shrimp make it after I had my 2 in the tank. So beware. They ate plenty from what I fed and just liked to hunt as the little predators they are.

Mine each had their own territory in a corner of the tank. But they went all around while hunting - resting they would stay in their corners.

They certainly are interesting to watch, lots of personality for such a small fish!

That's great, the colors really work well, even with your stock
