I thing both your scarlet badis are males. Females have no color and they are smaller.

+1

The one in the background looks like it could be a dominant male. But this is a definitely a male. They look good though, I love these guys!

Yeah unfortunately both males. Females are incredibly hard to get, they don't import them because they're not as pretty, they think most people want the pretty makes however only experienced aquarists have badis, and those people want females, lol!

I currently own 4 males. I used to have 2 females, but they went to badis heaven. The females were grayish with faint stripes. Their ventrals were also colorless. No blue or red on them at all. They were also alot smaller than the males. These fish are cute and fun to watch.

My Badis

I had a female once and she died as well. The I got two more and they turned into males. Hard to distinguish the immature males from the females.
