I was told that if you keep a group of all female Red Empress that one will eventually turn into a male i was going to by about four 1 male 3 females that are about 4 inches is it true that they change sex though?

There are fish that change sex but I am not sure about red empresses. I would say that it is more likely so that non dominant males are small and looks like females so there might be a male in the group of females just waiting for his chance. but it is possible

which tank are they fore?

i was thinking about buying them when the 180 is set up and having one hole side sectioned off but now that i think about it i might get them there own tank, theyve just been at the store for literaly over as year and i feel bad for them not to stay they arent looked after coz this family owned store takes great care of them its just i think they prefer a larger area
