Hi, yes they are born yellow -orange, the females stay that color . The males or first the dominate male starts changing at 1.5 inches or so, if you have a large enough tank the other males will color up later. , or enough hiding places . Ill post photos of my male changing ASAP. Ive seen a guy in Isreal who has a 400 gallon tank with just Ps Saulosi and he has alot of males with great color.. :p
