Personifer & Scribbled Angel Question

Has anyone heard or seen a personifer or scribbled angel growing and eventually becoming male in a home aquarium? Will having two different sizes of female make that happen in a 500+g tank?

Creating larger angels in pairs is something new, in the past unless they where collected as a pair no one tried it except for Imperators. Today many of us are trying it since like myself have done it with Flame and other pygmy angels. My current project is getting two blue face to pair. I started with a large adult and a juvenile. Six months later I have a large and a sub adult that seem to get along. Scribbled pairs are fairly common from DD. Personifer like the scribbled are fairly rare, so not many people have them.

Yes
I and many others here have done that. If the different is big enough it works better. Emporer same size is no problem. Scribbled same size is a problem buy a tiny one may be 4 cm and a bigger one may be 10cm in my opinion. 4cm and 5 cm and you will get trouble. But it will work also to pair if they don't kill each other.
