Do you know the difference between a Male and Female Uhu?

There are a bunch of different types of Uhu (Parrotfish), and they all go through different phases as they mature. During these phases, they change colors and some change from male to female. The only way to identify the sex of an Uhu is identifying the type and color. Almost all parrotfish start out as females in the Initial Phase and change to males in the Terminal Phase. However the Stoplight Parrotfish develop directly into males. In almost all cases, the color of the Uhu in the initial phase (female) is a dullish red-brown color while the males are bright neon green, blue or pink with yellow patches.
