Orange Eye Regular Tiger Babies

A few months ago I picked up some wild type tigers from alpha pro breeders. They have been doing well and I have had three females carry eggs to hatching. They ,although I am sure I have lost some to the chili rasboras, are now really start8ng to show themselves. I have counted at least 8 babies running around so far and those are the larger ones.

Although the parents all look like wild types, I have seen the majority with orange eyes and a couple of really dark/blue ones. Do all baby tigers show light colored eyes early on or is this a sign of OEBT genetics? I have attached a couple of pics for your review, please excuse the staghorn algae!

Possible culls from oebt. Are they "wild" or actually wild caught. My bet it is a cull

the first one looks like OEBT baby for sure. like the above poster, the parents are likely culls.

So I really wanted the regular type tigers but I did get confirmation from the vendor that the ones I got may have come from an OEBT full tank. These really could be a mix of wild type and culls. I am only slightly disappointed but at least they are healthy and breeding.
