When it comes to buying Red Empress it pays to be picky.. The variations of colour in Australia vary widely with many showing less and less red colouration. Although red empress are easy to come by this particular line when we first spotted them we just had to have. The father of this fish would have to be the best looking red empress male i have seen in Australia.

The Red empress are born silver and young juvies and females will show a thick black line running along the centre of its body. As the male matures it will develope the most intense red to the edges of its scales and a green/blue metallic head. The males as they mature will loose the black line and will develop white tips along the dorsal.
