Here's some updated photos of the pair. They are doing very well. The darker one especially is putting on some nice growth. So far they are doing well together. Occasionally the smaller one will ram the larger one.
Do you have any current photo's of these guys?

Alrighty, here we go. The second to last photo is the two new hatchlings that I recently acquired. I have added three more since the start of this thread. Photo #3 is also a newer one. All of these were temperature-sexed so hopefully I end up with a 2.3 ratio.

So beautiful. Thanks for snapping these for us. Can't wait to get some of these guys. This forum is dangerous. I've got cherryheads and Forstenii on my mind. Think I'll stick with just Forstenii though. Maybe...

I feel you, I look on here, and then go and look in the yard to figure out where I could put a new enclosure or 2.

very neat. Love this species, never worked with them but only read and hear good things. Keep us updated on their progress

Do you keep them together, if not, how do you have them broken out?

I do not keep them together due to their extreme aggressive behavior, except for a pair of hatchlings. Each tortoise has it's own enclosure which is heavily planted with various palms, Crotons, Aloes, and Draceana.
