Hi i have a nine month old hermann tortoise. Right know he is fed weeds and flowers but as it gets colder hes gonna be fed dried weeds and grocery store lettuce.

Right know i give him calcioum without d3 3 times a week and calcium with d3 or nutrobal once a week. He also has access to cuttlebone at all times altough he doesn't eat from it.

Is this a good amount?

It sounds almost like a little too much but I'm also new to turtles and tortoises. I'm sure someone will answer ur question later :)

So i should go down to like 3 times a week?
You quoted my post that says I think two times a week should be enough. If you want to do three times a week, go ahead. I don't think any harm will come to your tortoise from three times a week.
