what a tease.I may have an idea who had them 😎
Alright, next phase of my plan will be to start knocking on doors in Norwich.In 2018 I won an online auction from a seller in Norwich. When I went to pick up the item, (an aquarium), we chatted a bit and he told me he was the only person in the UK breeding Scarlet Badis. It went a bit over my head at the time so I didn't ask to see them, I just thought it a bit odd that he would think nobody else was breeding them. Now I know why.
Got any tips for identifying females? Can you recall at roughly what size/age sex becomes apparent in this species?I don't have them anymore, they went to a now shut aquarium store. They've always been desirable. I thought i shared pics of the fry on here, but I did not.
As for breeding, blackwater, live foods, pH closer to 5 than 6. Sponge filter, no flow. They hunt their young. Eggs are tiny, so just siphon the spawning area and you may get some eggs out.
I had then from 2016 to 2018.
i believe so there’s dimorphism between. Some time to rest and baby brine will settle them well so will find out soon.
I've got a group of Black Tiger and it's a lot easier to tell male from female with those at a younger age
appreciate the tip! I actually had a pair of Dario Hysignon a few years ago and the difference between male and female was very apparent. I made a terrible mistake with this pair and had them temporarily in the same tank as a much smaller surplus male Dario dario that had been sold to me as a female. Initially the three of them were fine sharing a tank but as the male Dario dario grew in confidence he became extremely aggressive and killed the male D. Hysignon while I was out of the country for work. For reference here's the female and male D. hysignon.
