Thank god! When someone says they grow as big as their enviroment that scares me its pretty vague. No real name was listed for these guys. I guess worst come to worst I could take them back when they got to big & get smaller ones but Id hate to do that.

I will post after pics in a few weeks on their progress with the calcium it almost looks like there is some nice new growth starting. Is that even possible for it to happen that quickly? I put it in there on sat or sunday I cant remember.

I'd slow down the growth to allow the shell to thicken assuming the new growth is very thin. You can do that by lowering the temperature to at least 74 degrees.

I believe I can fly!

I think about it every night and day!
