Question synopsis: Candy vs Lavender… will Candys make Lavenders obsolete?
I think that Lavenders will continue to be in high demand regardless of what the Candy project does. Candys / Toffees are also a very cool project and I think they are beautiful.
Here’s how I see it: Lavenders look WAY better as hatchlings…. they also look as good or better as older adults…The Candy’s big advantage is they get their purple in faster (which is awesome)… However Candys have the major draw back of the albino compatibility, which sucks so much $ value out of them from a breeder’s standpoint.
So those are the issues… personally I LOVE the Lavender gene and the simplicity that comes with it compared to the inter-compatibility of the other Albino type genes.

Curious, what do you mean by “Candys have the major draw back of the albino compatibility, which sucks so much $ value out of them from a breeder’s standpoint” I’m still rather new to morphs and such …
Because they are compatible with Albinos which are common and inexpensive, it makes producing them less exclusive and drives down price.
I didn’t get what you meant either but now I do and I agree with you!
