    First order of business is to treat sand like a predator and keep your tort FAR away. I would also invest in a temp gun for the basking spot, they are pretty cheap. As for growth, they almost never grow at the same rate. Follow the dietary advice for your age of tort and all will likely be fine.

    I will do, my coconut coir is on its way so as soon as it is delivered I will get it changed.

    Could anybody please be so kind and show me a photo of their current tortoise enclosure/vivarium? The temp has dropped here in England so I am looking at ways to adapt my tortoise table as a matter of urgency to allow the heat to stay in better, however I am interested to see somebody else’s set up. Is it true that tortoises become stressed in a vivarium due to the glass?

    Again, I can’t thank you all enough for your help
