I have read that in the wild that red parents or any other color combination could produe the whole range in colors. But in alot of areas the dominant colors are red/orange.

So when breeding these in captivity is it frowned aupon to mix orage and red parents. I have seen cb bastimentos that range from light orange to deep rustic red and everything inbetween. Some of this may be do to poor picture quality but I have seen alot of color variation. And if you have one color howfar can you stray from matching its exact color.

I wouldn't worry about it

Justin Yeager has a great photo of his trip to Bastamentos Island. In it he is holding four different color morphs of pumilio all caught within a few feet of each other. It is quite impressive. The variety is amazing. As long as they were Bastamentos pumilio I wouldn't worry about it.
