    Badis with dropsy, but still eating/behaving normally

    Terrible fish injury

    During the night one of my fish tore into my badis badis. The whole side of his face is practically gone. Surprisingly he is alive and eating a little bit. I moved him to a more peaceful tank. I’ve been using melafix. I’m wondering if there’s anything else I should do? How often should I do...

    Scarlet Badis(Dario Dario)

    Hey all! I've been reading up on these little guys and I was curious if a pair or harem would do well in a 15g tank? Most likely going to keep it a species tank, maybe add in a few snails to clean up. Any info on them would be great! Thanks!
