yeah thats like all clown fish or nemos cuz they r all borned male :roll:

Correct me if im wrong but ....

i read that they are born sex-less and then the largest one turns female and the second largest is male then the rest are sex-less untill one of the 2 biggest ones go away/die then the next biggest one changes its sex to make up for it.

No wonder they are all bored males if only one female hey vickers :D

I always thought that sex change was a myth in fresh water (whilst well known in salt) and most reports appeared to be the subdominant male disguising in female colours to avoid unwanted attention.

Also reported often in checkerboard cichlids.

Now I am just not sure

I had a P.saulosi female that turned into male colouration. Usually they just get the dull stripes if feeling threatened but this one went almost the same as the male except not as vivid. Didn't actually change into a male however (I don't think :roll: )
