Very apt indeed )

Antifa looked very much red translucent when I found her- red, pink, maybe some orange. She’s looking more blue and purple by the day though! I can only wonder what she’ll look like a year from now...

I like the blue/ purple- I hope she stays that color - it is unique

The coloring is as unique as her name- I wanted a redleather back but the breeder I got her from didn't have any- but I did see blazes parents- the dad was the translucent and mom was the wiblet

That makes sense with the orange/red shading then. A good look, looks fiery but also kinda sunflowerey )

I like the purple blue colors too, I hope they keep some. I’m really in love with this light/sky blue detail around the diamonds on her tail most of all. Have been looking at lots of purple paradox photos and it’d be neat if she started showing some of those traits when she gets older. So far I only really know how to spot translucent traits and I imagine that’s an easy identifier for beginners like me

Hey Karrie,

I've been looking online at 24" fixture options to get for the new tank, per your suggestion, but as far as Zoo Med hoods that come with the Reptisun 10.0 I am only finding the 'high output' option available.

As far as other appropriate looking fixtures, I'm only really seeing the Zilla Slimline, like the one I have now.

Would you suggest the high output could work for the Zen-sized tank? Or would it make more sense to do what I'm doing now, get the Zilla fixture, and then swap it out for a 'normal' 10.0 24" bulb?

thanks and best
