The scarlet Badis are nano fish that are known for their magnificent color. They are shy, timid, and also picky eaters. They are sensitive to changes in water parameters, so only acclimate this fish into an established tank. We recommend a diet of live and frozen foods such as blood worms, brine shrimp, Mysis, or daphnia. Flakes are safe to feed them however; they usually don’t seem to eat them.
