Elusive female Scarlet Badis (dario)
For all of those despairing of the apparent lack of available females of DARIO DARIO
, I offer the following shot of my successfully breeding pair ( the female is on the left). When I first set these guys up in a separate breeding set-up, she looked like she was supposed to according to the literature ( washed-out & pinkish) but a couple of days ago I looked in the tank & saw two apparent males
. My first reaction was disgust but that rapidly changed to something else when I saw the tiny babies
Perhaps those interested in breeding dario should take another look @ the available stock. A number of fishes have 'sneaker males' wherein they assume a female color pattern & demeanor. Perhaps the reverse is true for dario for whatever reason.
