Haven't been on in awhile, and figured I would check in with some 6 month old stats and pics. Hoxie made 6 months on sept. 6th. Current carapace length measured with a micrometer is 3.14 inches (7.98cm). Weight is 104 grams. Targeted weight with Dr. Donohue formula is 96.90 grams. Might be time for a little diet. Thanks again for everyone's wonderful advice and helpfulness on this forum.

Hoxie's looking pretty good! I wouldn't worry about the diet. Your ratio would be 1.04 which is a very acceptable amount! Keep up the great work :D

Also, the Donoghue formula is supposedly more reliable when they're *not* babies if I recall (from www.tortoiselibrary.com) but it seemed to work just fine for my babies.
