    I have had 2 sulcatas for a year and a few months now and I was wondering if I still should soak everyday or every other day now? They are around 800 and 600 grams with no pyramiding at all.

    Yes, first year I do every day, then every other day I recommend until age 2 then you can cut back to 2-3 times a week or so for about another year.

    Btw, you do know of the dangers of having 2 tortoises together right?
    Hopefully you have them housed separate if not you should be taking the steps to do so before one gets sick or dies to bullying.
