A small perch-like fish notable for changing its colours with mood. Basic colour is greenish with black botches, but red and blue spots appear at times. There are no obvious differences between the two sexes.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
This small perch-like fish is adaptable in most regards but is very fussy about its food. It will not accept flake, pellet or freeze-dried foods. Live foods are preferred, including daphnia and bloodworms. Larger specimens will also take small earthworms. Wet-frozen foods may be accepted but since these fish are very slow feeders they shouldn't be forced to compete for food. Keep away from catfish and loaches, and instead keep them with small, peaceful, subtropical to low-end tropical surface swimming fish such as rasboras and dwarf barbs.
Like all Badis, these fish are territorial, particularly the males. The aquarium is best kept relatively cool during the winter, 18-20 C being ideal, and a bit warmer in summer to stimulate spawning. Provide plenty of plants and caves.
