 Totally  agree  with  SankarB.
 
 But  they  are  aggressive  too.  
 
 Also  they  are  good  jumer.  
 
 
 I  start  with  12  Badis  Badis,  now  only  3  left  (arround  2"  size).  Other's  jumped  out  after  defeat  with  the  big  &  stronger  one.
 
 In  my  badis  tank  I  also  kept  few  Puntius  Ticto,  Kholisa  Kholisha  and  couple  of  Queen  Loach.
 
 But  tank  is  full  of  various  plants,  lots  of  Hiding  Places.  But  I  love  them.
 
 
 For  Scarlet  Badis  I  have  a  separate  tank.  No  other  fishes  there.  3  Male  and  4  Female.
 
 Hi  Shankar,
 
 Can  you  tell  me  how  do  I  differentiate  Badis  Badis  Male  &  Female  !!  Also  is  it  possible  to  breed  them!!  They  are  in  a  2ft  tank  along  with  Puntius  Ticto,  Kholisa  Kholisha  and  couple  of  Queen  Loach.
 
 Deepak,
 
 They  are  really  lovely  fish.  ¬†Enjoy.......

 I'm  not  sure  if  they  are  wild  caught...Around  1inch..  all  12  are  not  of  the  same  size...

 Thanks  Abhi  da.  Yap....I  will  keep  the  jumping  thing  in  mind.  
 
 Chetesh  and  how  big  was  the  tank?   Very Happy  they  started  eating  grindals.  They  are  still  colourless.  But  they  have  attitude.Smile

 Tabby,  the  photo  that  you  have  shared  is  interesting.   Mine  look  bluish  in  color.  And  the  alpha  male  looks  a  splendid  blue  with  dark  blue/black  stripes  when  its  in  a  flaring  mode.
 
 Deepak,  like  all  females,  badis  females  lack  color.   They  are  mostly  greyish.   They  have  stripes,  but  its  not  as  explict  and  clear  as  the  males.   And  they're  smaller  than  the  males.
 
 Frankly,  I  don't  how  to  breed  them.  I  didn't  get  to  know  that  they  bred  until  I  saw  the  fries.   Even  now,  I  see  the  male  going  into  seclusion  for  prolonged  periods  of  time,  not  coming  out  to  eat,  guaarding  the  nest  etc.   But  no  more  fries  :O
 
 I  think  you  can  do  the  following:
 
 1)  Provide  plenty  of  caves  and  other  such  places  (the  eggs  are  guarded  by  males  and  they  drive  off  the  female  as  well.   So  its  single  parenting.   But  even  then,  the  male  will  not  take  too  long  a  care).
 
 2)  Reduce  competition.   Do  not  have  too  many  males,  if  the  tank  is  smaller.
 
 3)  Reduce  their  timidness.   Move  them  to  a  species  only  tank.   Fast  moving  fishes  might  scare  them  off.
 
 4)  Check  which  site/  nest  the  male  is  guarding.   Take  that  pot  out  to  see  if  there  are  eggs.   Just  like  in  any  other  case,  you'll  maximize  your  chances  of  fries  surviving  if  they  are  moved  to  a  separate  tank.
