Does he look better? Am I stopping it? How do I know?

Thanks everyone!

Before and after pics would be better, and from the side.

It looks really good now. However a side view is really needed to see what is going on with pyramiding. The seams between vertebrals, and between verterals and costals are the most prone to pyramiding in a younger tortoise. A side view to look at the "valley" that is being formed and how flat the bottom of the valley is now is what to look for.
