The Scarlet Badis is a small, colorful fish native to South Asia. It is also known as the Red Badis, or simply the Badis fish. These fish are native to India, Bangladesh, and Nepal, and are found in a variety of freshwater habitats including streams, ponds, and rivers.
Scarlet Badis are small fish, typically reaching a maximum size of around 2 inches in length. They have a slender, elongated body with a small head and a slightly upturned mouth. The body is covered in small, iridescent scales that give the fish a shimmering appearance. The most striking feature of the Scarlet Badis is its vibrant coloration. The fish has a bright red-orange body with a deep blue-black stripe running down the center of its back. The fins are typically a lighter shade of orange and may have black edges.
Scarlet Badis are peaceful, timid fish that do well in a community tank with other small, non-aggressive species. They are not demanding in terms of water conditions and can adapt to a wide range of pH levels and temperatures. However, they do prefer a well-planted tank with plenty of hiding places and a soft substrate to dig in. These fish are omnivorous and will accept a variety of foods including flakes, pellets, and live or frozen foods such as brine shrimp and daphnia.
Overall, the Scarlet Badis is a beautiful and low-maintenance addition to any freshwater aquarium. With their small size and peaceful nature, they make an ideal choice for beginning aquarists or those with limited space. They are also a great choice for those looking to add some colorful, eye-catching fish to their tank.
