    My Dario sp. Scarlet & 'Melon/Flame red' badis

    I plan to try and breed these. Right now I have two Dario Hysginon, I believe they are a male and female pair, and a single male Dario dario. I've been searching for a few months now for female Dario dario with no luck whatsoever. The male who I found on his own amongst a huge shoal of tetras in...

The reason I've listed both names is that some people catfish...

    where to get fissidens in the UK?
