Default RETF Eyes not as red, more orange?

I have 4 RETFs about 3 years old, their eyes are not as red as the used to be, diet is the same, crickets dusted with Cal. and Vits, they all are eating, no weight loss??

Try feeding your crickets high quality fish food for color. Carotenoid helps with colors like, orange,red, and yellow. Some newt breeders will feed it to the feeders to get the nice color a wc newt would have being from the wild. I have used fluval color max formula on my N. Kaiseri newts and it helps keep thier oranges bright. As long as your frogs look healthy and your vitamins are being given, maybe try what I do.

I think if you are using repashy calcium plus there is some superpig in it.

Rapashy Cal Plus and Herpavit, both are less then 3 months old. Crickets are feed fish food, fresh greens and occasional fruit.
