 Age difference

Will an age difference matter in how emps get along?

Also, how young can the sex of the emp be found?

I have started the set-up of my new emp habitat with a 30 gal. aquarium and a screen top. I was planning on mixing the jungle earth substrate with some potting soil or top soil. Would this help promote burrowing?

Thanks for the answers!

p.s.
I looked up the old forums about sexing emps and according to one of the links, I just have a big male or a female with big pectines.

Age doesn’t matter,but size dose....Larger ones will eat the smaller ones if there is an extreme difference....
Around 3in is when you can start to tell,that’s just body length,not including their tail...
And that mix sounds good....If they’re in the mood to burrow they will.Just make sure there’s atleast 6in of it...
