Changing amount of a Solid

What happens to the pressure of H2O when the amount of Fe3O4 halves? Fe3O4 (s) + 4H2 (g) <--> 3Fe (s) + 4H2O (g)

The answer is "nothing" because we don't include solid or liquid components in equilibrium expressions.

If we changed the temperature would we also not include 3Fe since it is a solid?

I do not believe you would include the solid if you change the temperature.
