Does [Zn(NH3)4(H2O)2]2+ exist? and if it does what colour is it?

I'll bet it does and I'll bet it is colourless.
But what do I know?

Not tremendously interesting but I believe it’s actually tetrahedral [Zn(NH3)4] 2+ - Zn(II) is too small to fit all those ligands around it, but it’s a fine balance (theres probably some octahedral stuff knocking about).
If it did exist it would be colourless though
