Care Guide: Blue Badis are relatively easy to care for but have specific requirements to thrive. Follow this care guide to ensure the optimal health and vibrant colors of your Blue Badis:

Tank Size:

  • Provide a tank of at least 10 gallons for a small group of Blue Badis. A well-planted tank with hiding spots is ideal.

Water Parameters:

  • Temperature: Maintain a water temperature between 72-78°F (22-26°C).
  • pH: Keep the pH level in the range of 6.0-7.5.
  • Hardness: A moderate water hardness ranging from 5-15 dGH is suitable.


  • Use a gentle filtration system as Blue Badis prefer slow to moderate water flow. Ensure the filter outlet is not too strong.

Decor and Plants:

  • Provide ample hiding spots with caves, driftwood, and plants. Blue Badis appreciate a well-planted tank with floating vegetation.
  • Use a substrate of fine sand to mimic their natural environment.


  • Blue Badis are carnivores. Offer a varied diet of high-quality flake or pellet food.
  • Supplement their diet with live or frozen foods such as brine shrimp, bloodworms, and small insect larvae.


  • Blue Badis can be territorial, especially during breeding. Keep them in a species-only tank or with peaceful, non-aggressive tankmates.
  • Avoid keeping them with larger or more aggressive species.

Water Changes:

  • Perform regular water changes of 20-30% weekly to maintain water quality.


  • Blue Badis can be challenging to breed in captivity. Provide a separate breeding tank with fine-leaved plants.
  • The male will build a bubble nest, and the female will lay eggs. After spawning, remove the female to prevent aggression.

Note: The Blue Badis’s vivid colors and unique behavior make it a fascinating addition to aquariums. Their small size and striking appearance make them an excellent choice for aquarists looking to create a visually stunning display.
