I have a lovely BGM with 48 oz POM pomagranate juice added. The mead is starting to clear out and looks great - might be ready for secondary fermentation in about a week.

Maybe I could just add some more POM (flash-pasteurized) at secondary; the original color changed from vibrant red to a cross between red and orange as it fermented. It looks good, just wondering if it could be a tad better with little effort, or is this just a bad idea?

Any ideas, feedback or wisdom?

It won't hurt to top off, but I suspect the color will keep changing back.

Yeah......I was just looking at it and it looks pretty good the way it is - I don't want to risk any weirdness and have decided (upon reading many, many postings at this site) that experiments will best be done after I get a couple a one gallon jugs to play around with.
