Badis ruber

Peaceful fish that makes a small territory. The aquarium should be set up with stones, driftwood and roots, and should be planted very densely because they need a lot of hiding places. You should use some floating plants and the light must be dimmed. A regular changing of the water is necessary.

Origin

Badis ruber originates from the lowlands of Myanmar, Northern Thailand and Laos, mostly in the  en dan met Yeyarwady/Irrawaddy, Sittaung to Tenasserim and the Mekong riversystems.

Diet

You should give them small live food. They barely accept dry food.

Breeding Badis ruber

Breeding Badis ruber is not difficult. Up to 150 eggs are laid and fertilized in a cave. The male takes care of the fry during the first days. When the young fishes are swimming free you can raise them with baby brine shrimp.
