This fish will do well in an established planted aquarium with caves, rocks, and driftwood. The Badis is a territorial fish in a species tank, but is more peaceful in a community tank. Family groups are formed and are headed by the male.
Badis badis will breed in caves scattering the eggs which become attached to cave walls and the substrate. The male guards and defends the eggs, and, after about three days the fry hatch. The fry should be fed a diet of infusoria.
Carnivores, the Badis will consume live and frozen food, as well as freeze-dried bloodworms and tubifex, and small pieces of meat.
