They can change from a male to female (protandry), or from female to male (protogyny) or from female to hermaphrodite (protogynous hermaphroditism), or from male to hermaphrodite (protandrous hermaphroditism).
Those that change gonadal sex can have both female and male germ cells in the gonads or can change from one complete gonadal type to the other during their last life stage. In the Amphiprion percula species, there are zero to four individuals excluded from breeding and a breeding pair living in a sea anemone.
Protandrous hermaphrodites refer to organisms that are born male and at some point in their lifespan change sex to female. Dominance is based on size, the female being the largest and the male being the second largest.
The rest of the group is made up of progressively smaller non-breeders, which have no functioning gonads.
Protogynous hermaphrodites refer to organisms that are born female and at some point in their lifespan change sex to male.
