Scarlet Badis (Dario dario)

Who else keeps their Scarlet Badis in a peaceful community setting?

I have a single male who is thriving in my 45 gallon cube heavily planted mixed community tank. Its my favorite critter to watch as it moves in and out of all the dense foliage. It has so much personality in such a tiny package.

I also have one in a heavily planted 20 gallon. I am planning on getting at least 6 more very soon, but temperatures have kept me from ordering....

You guys are pretty lucky, none my LFS carry them. I just came across these little guys a few days ago and would love to get a few for my nano 6g.

I have two male D. dario in a heavily planted 8.5 gallon tank along with 8 A. normani and another 8 B. brigittae and a few cherries and amanos. I was only planning for 1 D. dario but ended up with two... It's quite packed in there but planting heavily seems to keep everyone happy.

The bigger badis will chase the smaller one away but I've not noticed any injuries so far...
