Introducing the Exquisite Scarlet Badis - A Burst of Color for Your Nano Aquarium!

Immerse yourself in the vibrant world of the Scarlet Badis (Dario dario), one of the most visually captivating nano fish in our collection. With their stunning combination of vivid red hues complemented by delicate hints of gold, these fish are sure to add a dazzling touch to your aquatic masterpiece.

Scarlet Badis thrive in an environment rich in vegetation and adorned with various decorations, providing ample hiding spots for these mesmerizing creatures. They possess a natural affinity for hunting microorganisms, making them an intriguing species to observe in action.

For your peace of mind, all our fish shipments are accompanied by a 100% Live Arrival Guarantee when opting for our Overnight (1 Day) shipping option. Please note that selecting any other shipping option voids our Live Arrival Guarantee for fish.

Due to their somewhat aggressive nature and selective appetite, it is advisable to house Scarlet Badis in a dedicated aquarium. However, some aquarists have reported success in cohabitating them with compatible fish, such as the Spotted Rasbora.

To cater to their specific dietary requirements, we meticulously feed our Scarlet Badis a nourishing blend of frozen baby brine shrimp, cyclops, and daphnia. These fish can be finicky eaters, so it's crucial to observe their feeding habits closely to ensure they are consuming their food. Live foods are also highly recommended as an enticing option to entice these beautiful creatures.

Elevate the visual allure of your nano aquarium with the breathtaking Scarlet Badis. Watch as their radiant colors shimmer and reflect in the water, creating a captivating display that is sure to mesmerize both novice and experienced aquarists alike. Secure your Scarlet Badis today and experience the joy of hosting these magnificent fish in your aquatic sanctuary!

Scarlet Badis (Males)

Nicole Grabowski

Awesome fish! The small nano size which I love but the act very differently than my Chili Rasboras and Celestial Pearl Danios. They can hold completely still on the rocks and like to spar with the other Badis. Love the orange stripes.

So far so good!

I'm really happy with my purchase, from flip aquatics, they went out of thier way to fulfill my order! The ONLY thing I would have to say anything relatively negative about, which is just me not on flip aquatics, is I was expecting the scarlet badis pictured, and received a male scarlet badis, except he was tiny lol, very cute and will grow to be whats in the picture, I guess I just wasn't expecting one so young lol. But like I said that's just me, and not on flip aquatics part! If your looking for a awesome place to get your fish, I'd highly recommend FLIP AQUATICS, and look forward to doing more business with them. Would love to receive coupons and or special promotions if that's a thing, there's so much I'd love to order!

Scarlet Badis!

These fish are amazing, they have such bright color. I have a 10 gallon tank with some red dragon guppies, neocaridina shrimp and anchor catfish. It's loaded with plants I decided to add 5 Scarlet Badis and they are doing very well. They are micro predators so very active when feeding and they just brighten up the tank. Great buy!

Great little guy

My scarlet badis arrived on time and he was also very healthy.
