Indoors they will throw dine sized leaves under normal light. These are from my Whiskey Barrel pond. I started a year a go with one plant. They will not grow big indoors.

There is no "dwarf" Water Lettuce sp. only small plants due to low light.

I'd be happy to pick out a bunch of the smaller plants for you if you want. Indoors they have baby plants when they reach nickel sized leaves. Also indoors the leaves are not as thick and they do not get cup shaped like a tulip. They stay flat on the surface. If you don't want a tub full, I'll make you a bag of 1/2 that much should cover a 20g for $6

Just got an email from GCCA. All tables sold out at the Swap. Should be a good event.

Curious to know would anybody be interested in Scarlet Badis juvies? I'm heading down with some friends from Madison and thought I'd ask to see if there were any takers.

The Scarlet Gem Badis is a shy, small freshwater fish considered one of the more underrated species in the hobby. Its brilliant coloration and unique personality reminiscent of dwarf cichlids make the Scarlet Gem Badis quite an interesting species to study.

Males feature 7 dark vertical bars across sides with bold red coloration, while females exhibit uniform grayish coloration or indistinct vertical bars. Breathtaking coloration and activity peaks during spawning, with rival males "facing off" or "dancing" alone for a female's attention.
The typical biotope for the Scarlet Gem Badis is clear, slow-moving streams with marginal vegetation. In the home aquarium, the Scarlet Gem Badis prefers densely planted aquariums with sandy substrate or fine gravel and plenty of surface vegetation as well. Also provide bogwood for hiding spots.
Not a candidate for the community aquarium, the shy Scarlet Gem Badis is best kept in species-only aquariums or alongside small anabantoids such as Liquorice Gouramis. Success has also been noted keeping with small shoals of Dwarf Spotted Rasboras, as long as you ensure enough food reaches your Scarlet Gem Badis.
Diet should consist of small live and frozen foods like bloodworm, daphnia, Cyclops and microworms. The Scarlet Gem Badis is a finicky eater, so observe carefully to ensure that what you offer is being eaten - and adjust diet accordingly. Approximate Size: 3/4" - 1"

lol @ DogFish. My 75G has no angels - moved them into the 56G after I lost some due to fighting.

75G is only dwarf rainbows, a few cardinals, and one rummy nose now. with 25ish amanos. i think these scarlet badis could survive in there, but am curious as to their size as juvies.

I'm thinking they are "Bite-Size" as juvies. Maybe o.k. if you load up some Hornwort or Water Lettuce for hiding places until they get bigger.
