Default red galact's going from red to maroon

I have been supplementing my fly media with 2.5% SuperPig and I have also included 25% SuperPig to the Calcium Plus when dusting flies. All frogs seems to be doing well.

It seems to me that my red galact's are getting darker and darker red to the point where they look more maroon than red. Has anyone else experienced this? Do you expect that what I'm seeing is indeed from the additional carotenoids? I suspect it is, but I don't want to jump to conclusions.

Interesting.

I think there`s a thread some where on a discussion where Superpig can actually lighten the red coloring.
I`ll see if I can find it.
