I thought I read somewhere yellow faces change color after thier first molt though? Is that true?

Also I was stumped on the sex. At first I thought I'm looking at a female since the cere wasn't a fleshy pink. They had 2 male/pink cere violets to compare too. After looking for a bit though the YF cere wasn't quite like the females either. It was a slightly blueish pink with no white rings? I have 2 boys now and would prefer to keep just boys. I'm considering going back to take another look. What do you think?


Thanks
A yellowface 2 will change colors after it molts. It will turn a sea greenish color. Buying one so young you probably won't be able to tell whether it is a yf 1 or 2.

And photos nonflash would help with telling the gender
