Default Orange Terribilis Color Variations

I have 7 orange terribs ranging from froglets to Juvies that are currently living in the same tank. I bought all of them together (4 as tadpoles, 3 as froglets) and as they are growing, some of them are a bright yellow and some are orange. Is yellow one of the variations of the orange terribilis? It's hard to say how yellow they are compared to a true yellow terribilis, but a couple of them do not look any hue of orange at all. Is this a normal variation?


I attached a picture of one of them. The true orange ones were all hiding

I have a group of 6 adults that are 2.5 yrs old and they have been heavily supplemented with super pig their whole lives and still only 3 of mine have any type of orange coloration. The other all just look like a bold yellow. And none of mine are the insane bold orange of other people's pics I see on the board. When I got them I was hoping they would be orange like my orange galacts which is a deep bold pumpkin orange. So I guess some variation is indeed normal for these guys.

When mine were a year old, I had two that were deep orange and two that were more yellow. Now at 16 months, they're all deep orange. I think there is a little variation. I use repashy calcium plus (which has some super pig mixed in) and then I use some super pig about every 10 days or so. Are you using any pigment enhancers?
