 Nice  to  see  that  I  have  got  people  interested.
 They  usually  come  in  looking  rather  drab  and  I  bet  most  of  you  seen  and  let  it  pass  as  another  brown  fish.
 
 Camy  -  1.5x1.5x1.2  (The  ones  in  the  bottom  row  if  you  recall)
 
 Supra:  Leaf  Litter  -  A  bed  of  leaves  at  the  bottom  of  the  tank  to  recreate  a  biotope.  This  provides  for  safety  and  in  some  cases  reduces  the  PH  of  water.  You  could  use  Badam  leaves  or  Jackfruit  leaves.  I  use  Jackfruit  leaves  as  they  disintegrate  slower  in  hard  water.  Badam  leaves  are  supposed  to  be  better  for  bringing  down  PH  though.  You  can  use  this  for  most  labyrinth  fishes  as  well  as  Badids,  Apisto  and  West  Africans.  Dont  use  it  in  tanks  for  hard  water  fishes.
 Was  the  leaves  thoroughly,  dry  them  in  the  sun  and  add  them  to  your  tank.
 
 Nayak:  Adipa  has  handled  quite  a  few  of  them  so  he  should  be  able  to  get  them  for  you.  Just  make  sure  there  are  females  among  them  as  Badids  seem  to  be  caught/shipped  across  with  a  highly  skewed  sex  ratio.  
 
 Deepak:  6  of  them.  Got  them  from  Calcutta.
 
 Asim:  Yes,  but  not  from  South  India.
 
 Vyas:  No  they  are  not  as  colorful  but  still  interesting.  They  are  fit  for  Species  tanks  only.
 
 Rohan:  As  Trevor  said,  these  fellas  are  not  as  fussy  as  Dario  dario  but  still  do  not  usually  take  dry  food  as  in  pellets  or  flakes.

 I  have  at  the  moment  eight  B.  badis  and  i  thoroughly  agree  with  the  species  tank  concept.  I  keep  mine  in  various  15  gal  tanks  with  sand,  leaf  litter  and  floating  plants.  The  only  tankmates  are  H.  hara,  as  they  seem  to  live  perfectly  together  and  enjoy  the  same  food.
 
 Your  Badis,  especially  the  one  in  the  first  pic  are  absolutely  stunning.  My  guys  show  off  a  lot  of  colour,  but  i've  only  got  that  amount  of  brilliance  while  they  were  breeding.
 
 I  feed  my  lot  almost  exclusively  live  foods,  tubifex,  mosquito  larvae  and  chopped  up  earthworms.
 
 I  remember  when  i  first  got  them,  i  used  to  house  them  in  a  native  comm.  tank  with  a  bunch  of  killies  and  barbs.  They  never  did  very  well  in  there,  were  healthy  but  did  not  show  off  colours  as  much.
 
 apart  from  the  leaf  litter,  another  thing  i  use  a  lot  are  broken  flower  pots,  they  serve  well  as  caves.

 Beautiful,  Beta!  Stunning  fish  and  pics.
 
 To  echo  Trevor:  Welcome  back.   Smile  
 
 Planning  to  sneak  into  Theosophical  Society  and  collect  some  fallen  Badam/  Jackfruit  leaves...wash,  dry,  use....right?  Anything  else  I  need  to  know  about  the  process?
 
 @  Neil:  Would  appreciate  pics  of  your  setup  and  fish  as  well....

Lovely.
 I  always  thought  Badis  require  live  food.                

 
 Buddy....  I  have  Darios  for  last  5  months  ...  and  never  seen  them  touching  any  kind  of  dried  food.  But  still  I  have  4  of  them  but  not  in  good  shape.  I  think  they  are  living  on  algae  and  snails  eggs.

 Wow   Surprised   Awesome  fish  Beta.  Must  say  looks  rather  awesome  compared  to  the  way  they  normally  get  shipped  in.  Havent  yet  managed  to  lay  my  hands  on  them  here,  hopefully  as  and  when  i  come  down  i  can  get  a  few.  Superb  fish  again.  Well  done.

 Looks  awesome  Beta  !
 
 Agree  with  you  completely  on  having  a  dedicated  tank  to  themselves,  these  beauties  sure  do  deserve  it.
 
 Coloration...that  is  one  of  the  best  I;ve  seen  till  date....any  of  them  doing  the  act  ?
 
 Cheers,

 Thanks  Trevor.

 Neil:  Good  tip.  I  use  the  small  Matka/Kulfi  pots.  I  have  used  coconut  shells  in  the  past.
 
 Ashwin:  Nope.  Its  as  simple  as  it  sounds.
 
 Hayath:  I  do  have  a  pair  at  the  moment.  Lets  keep  our  fingers  crossed.
 
 Thanks  to  the  others  Smile
