~matt~ said:yeah 2.5in is too small to have any colour yet, i have a male red empress that is about 4in and doesent have any colour on it at all
Any pictures? I have Firebird haps, which are pretty much a color morph of red empress, juvis look the exact same. Bought them almost 2 weeks ago they are about 2.5 inches, noticed the other day ones showing clear male coloration already. It can happen anytime and very quickly. Around 2 months ago my Taiwan Reef colored from silver female appearance to full colored male within a few days.LeeD said:I would like to add that within a week this fish when from grey to a fully colored male. To me this is incredible. I was convinced it was female.
