Scarlet Badis!

Picked up 2 males yesterday! I knew I liked them the moment I saw them. Very curious and beautifully colored.

They are very shy though! I had to take the picture at some distance because they always move away from my camera.

They look more relaxed today so I hope they'll take my hikari daphnia later

Looks like a m/f pair there. Great little fish.. when they get comfy they'll be out sniping food. Mine has become pretty well adept at picking of baby snails of the floating water lettuce. Very entertaining!

that would be an awesome occurrence for me to see!

i apologize for my camera quality. the lighting wasn't the best and it was through my phone. the smaller one actually has stripes, but they are very faint. i just assumed it's a small young male yet to get his colors. if it is a striped female that'd be glorious and would definitely help in my consideration to breed these in the future.

Hoping to finally get some for my 2.5 gallon once I either trade my puffer for one or once he checks out.....hopefully not for another few years. Don't get me wrong, he's really cool and I love him, but he is just a huge pain to feed and maintain. Very cool fish, and that is definitely a pair.

Is it common for them to eat baby snails?

I find them once in a while in one of my other tanks, might as well give it a try.

Scarlet Badis!

Keep an eye on the "female". One of mine that I thought was female, turned out to be a subdominant male and it did eventually color up.

My true female kept her silver color.
