    Do you have any better pics? I'd be surprised if all your fish were female...

    Hopefully when I find my charger, I can get more pics, but that's the best pic I have right now. The pic that's there is representative of them all. Same size, same colours.

    Lisa,

    My best bet would be Badis badis badis females.

    The males should not be hard to find, particularly if you haunt your LFS to any degree. Often the males are the only ones shipped to the stores.

    Zapisto, you gave instructions to artificially hatch the eggs. Is this neccessary? Do the adults show any kind of parental care if left alone?

    In my experience the male looks after the eggs. I removed the females as soon as the male was brooding and then removed the male as soon as fry appeared.
