I have two badis badis right now in an 8 gallon biocube with 2 honey gourami (smallest of the non dwarf and supposed to be the most peaceful). I know that's small; but I'm cycling a 29 gallon to which I'd like to add them.
Both of the badis badis are fairly colorless, light pink with a little darker stripes. This doesn't match any pictures or descriptions I've read. Could they both be females?
They are not shy in this 8 gallon. They beat the honey gourami out of the food. They even go to the top for the food that floats. They also chase the honeys some. The honeys back away from them most of the time. This puzzles me.
The 29 gallon is cycling with 5 x-ray pristellas (albino) right now.
So my concerns are the following:
1. Should I add the badis badis to the 29 gallon; are these females, do I need to add more of them?
2. Are the two honey gouramis going to be ok in the 29? Do I need to add another one of these so they are not so shy?
3. Should I leave either the badis badis or the honey gourami in the 8 gallon?
All suggestions are appreciated.
