    This is my Scarlet Badis. A few days ago, I noticed this on her tail and I'm not sure what it is. Shes in a 3 gallon tank with 6 neocardinia shrimp and I have a sponge filter going. She's acting completely normal and feeding/hunting well. I was told it was columnaris, but I would have expected...

    Hi all, I’ve got a new tank set up for dwarf puffers. It’s a heavily planted 35-40 litre tank with very good filtration. Fully cycled and ready to go. Just wondering if a m/f pair or even a trio is better than a single puffer?

    Hi! I currently have a 15 gallon tank with 15-20ish cherry shrimp, 4 oto’s, 8 chilli raspbora and a growing pond snail problem. I also just bought a 6 gallon tank as I wanted to set up a small tank for a single dwarf puffer. The issue is that I have also recently seen some Scarlet Badis at...

    I'm hoping to breed these. For now I only have a pair of Dario hysginon and a single male Dario dario but I'm looking for female D. dario. The single male wasn't doing too well when I bought him because he was on his own in a small shop tank with a huge shoal of tetras. He was almost totally...

    On Monday I bought a Scarlet Badis for my 10 gallon. Last night I couldn't find it, but didn't think much of it since it often hides. This morning I still couldn't find it. The back of the tank is about 5" form the wall so I took my camera (phone) and shot a video of it. Here are the last 6...

    Howdy guys and gals! This is just a small question :] I have a new Scarlet Badis, the first I've owned, and I was wondering A. The sex, for one. I've been assuming it's a he because of the behavior and the red stripes, but the red is really faint and I'd like a second opinion. 2. If it is a...

    I have one scarlet badis with a group of cardinals. The badis is always hiding and rarely comes out to eat. I never seen it eat but it's been alive for a week since I had it. I think its eating the pellets and frozen brine shrimp when i'm not looking. I don't like that the badis are always...

    Hi guys, I'm planning on adding a couple of Scarlet badis to one of my planted tanks. The current inhabitants are 5 CPDs and about 25 RCS. Hopefully they'll get along with my CPDs, who are pretty shy to begin with. From what I've read so far, these guys seem to be picky eaters. I'm hoping to...
