They look nice. Number 7 looks to have a perfect high dome shape.
Thanks! As a matter of fact, the photos are deceiving in most cases...they ALL have high domed carapaces! ;) And, for the record, I'm going to employ a color dot system soon! The runt is now the second largest...and I do think it's important to keep a modicum of accuracy in their records! :D

I've herd people mention the RUNT a few times. Does the runt need extra care to ensure survival or is just the fact they are the smaller one of the group?

In this case...just the smallest! Those hatched improperly...too dry, etc...of those that fall to HFS are a different thing altogether.

What a difference Mazuri makes! Mine are growing steadily, but slower than normal for me. Yours are growing at the normal pace for me.

@Tom funny thing! They're only getting Mazuri once a week! With the addition of Kendall's Mix (thanks Rodney)...they leave no scraps!

Here are a few shots of the 8s... @Tom the domes are insane on these guys! I'm not so sure that that Sudan girl isn't the mother after all!

The three largest are all 3.45" and weigh between 162 and 181 grams...the other five are all 3.15" and weigh between 131 and 143 grams!

Looking good. I'll get another weight on mine soon.

Hey Dean,
they are beautiful. I love seeeing their growth, and the differences in sizes is amazing! I was just wondering what their enclosure looks like?
Because Tom has shown his as part of his experiment, and I just wanted to compare? Thanks
