Thanks for the advice, I will try it for a month or so and see what happens. Will probably have to give the badis away since they won't enjoy the auto feeder :/

Quick question, so all I would need to do is buy some amphipods or scuds and just dump them in my tank (probably at night) and let nature take course?

Actually, it moves with the current, seems to want to fall off... I'm really tempted to use some tweezers to pull it off. Probably a bad idea.

It is definitely not very fluffy.

Any ideas?

It's sticking out like it shows in the picture, stays pretty solid. I didn't notice it before the way it looks today? Are you suggesting it could be a worm burrowing into my fish?

My thought was female as well, but the person who buys the fish at the PetSmart said all they get are males... This fish is really 1.5 inches long, so guessing the employee was just wrong.

Yeah just give it time, mine took almost 2 months to really start going, but its definitely a snowball effect. It ends up everywhere, runners seem to span the entire tank sometimes.
