We have 2 CDT that are almost 2 years old. During their soak time, I dripped some water on their shells and they looked very different from one another. Should I be concerned? Coloring and pattern seem so different 20190427_154448.jpg

I second what Yvonne said. Both look healthy and normal to me.

Glad to see them soaking too!

They look like they've got a little pyramiding started. That is caused by growth in conditions that are too dry. If want want to know how to fix it, just ask.

Yes, any advice is welcomed. I read some of the existing threads and I might need to increase the humidity. If they are getting a balanced diet, do they need cuttlefish? Here's a better photo of their shells while chomping on dandelion
