Richard Yorke There was mention on one of the groups about cuckoo wrasse changing sex, which set me looking for a picture. I've now found the picture but can't find the post it was relevant to, but I'll post it here anyway. This is a half way stage with the characteristics of both sexes present. The sharp eyed might also see a Tritonia nilsodhneri on the sea fan in the bottom left corner

Phillip Hyden Certain land animals have been known to change sex but it is only when their environmental conditions are stressed, would this be the same with the wrasse?

Richard Yorke No, in this case it is when a group of females is left without a male for some reason. One of the females then changes to a male to fill the gap.

Phillip Hyden Is this behaviour common in marine animals? I knew that cuttlefish males imitate females but didn't know that fish went through that process. (edit) I just read the aquarium write up you posted, that is awesome and a great way for a species to keep a good gene pool, matriarchal dominant female changing to male, could teach us a thing or two.

João Pedro Silva Coris julis do the same.
