huh? I dont think they can 'change' their sex.. I do think males can show female colors to keep from getting killed.jsnipper said:the thing is I wont know what sex any of them are until they begin to mature... And even then, the M.auratus can change their sex, so I'm hoping they'll go 1 male 3 female.
I think he might be referring to how they all look like females as juvies then the males change color?BrianNFlint said:huh? I dont think they can 'change' their sex.. I do think males can show female colors to keep from getting killed.
I don't know about crabo, but Aratus are definitely aggressive towards others. My first and only experience with aratus is when I added 4 to a community tank. In about two months I had an aratus tank. I think they are fine for good sized tanks with lots of rocks and hiding places, but they are definitely a challenge and I would return them.jsnipper said:i read and was told that the auratus and crabro are more aggressive against their own species and not others.
