    The beautiful reddish colouration we see in the description is not their every day pattern but appears only in dominant or ‘breeding’ males. What they look like on a daily basis, and this how they’ve appeared to me since I’ve got them in May or June, is shown above here. I thought it was a good idea to post this so people can recognize them when they see them somewhere. Now this a sexually mature male (do not confuse it with fully grown), and one of my biggest.

    Matt; feel free to use this photo and if anyone else wants to; please ask.

    I might as well post some other species also (and should’ve chosen a different thread title that comprises all Badis species). So here’s ferrarisi (which I keep with Akysis and Danio) and pyema:


    I don’t think this was a female after all, but a young male.

    So the male B. juergenschmidti don’t take on that red colouration when displaying at one another?

    The B. ferrarisi are lovely. Still gutted about my ‘experience’ with them…

    Yeah it’d be great to try again when the weather’s warm enough.

    During a water change today I saw that 2 Badis juergenschmidti have apparently paired up. I’d expected the male to be one of the bigger ones, but it’s not. He also had two nice coconut shells to choose from but instead he felt more for a natural pebble cave – interesting because for me that never happens. Makes it freaking difficult to take the fry out using my usual method too, but now I’m getting ahead of myself.

    Stefan, it’s better you post all your Badids in this thread, so that I won’t miss any. /smile.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:)” border=”0″ alt=”smile.gif” />

    Badis badis: Thanks; and they will turn blue and dark later on. I keep them with WR and that goes well. This male decided to live around a rock one day and it still does

    Wow absolutely lovely! Is that breeding colouration in the male?

    Nope, this is their normal colouration. They can have even brighter black and orange on the flanks, but I couldn’t get that correctly on film (behind a plant, etc.). I don’t think pyema has real breeding colours if memory serves me right.
