    THAT is how to raise RF's and YF's! You'll get perfect carapaces and wonderful growth - following the right diet as well.

    Very nice. I notice your 2 yr olds show some, what could be mistaken to be minor pyramiding. Have you noticed there is a point during growth where they get slightly bumpy then it grows out smooth. If yes, is it the bone structure developing under the scutes that we are seeing?

    I've had a few of them look like they'd start to pyramid, then in a few months it was back to smooth growth. So far, no issues.
