What color change are you referring to? It is not unusual for adult males to develop white fronts.

It looks like you have some stocking issues which may end in bullied or dead fish, if you'd like to discuss them.

It is getting ready to breed which could end badly for all the rest of your fish.

Unless you want more fish to die, then yes. It sounds like you need to rehome more than just the one though, if you have a big male Texas. We can help you decide which ones to rehome, if you'd like. Can you list your tank size and fully stocking?

And what species is the one you really want to keep? We can help you plan a stocking around that species (using some of the species you already have).

Unfortunately I don't think that is possible. You've lost fish already, and you'll lose more if you don't change something.
