The females may already be gravid, or they could have mated and you didn't notice.

Try keeping them more controlled. Free roam in a tank may not always do the trick. You have a place for it to deposit right?

As EAD063 said, you have hard flat piece of slate or rock or whatever for the male to drop his spermatophore?

This may also seem sarcastic but it's not, are all your emperors, well emperors?
I seen alot of different species sold and ID'd as P.Imperator, and they are not.
This may also effect sexing.

Good luck.
