  • Gary's shell

    I thought I already asked this, but since I can't find it, I guess not. Is it normal for the shell to look a little flakey where the new growth meets the old? I'm not able to post pics.

        This is normal.
        The old that is strong, does not wither.

          Thank you, I was afraid he wasn't getting enough of something.

            Flaky, no. There are usually lines and stuff that can be deep into the shell but the shell shouldn't be flaky.

              Maybe flaky is the wrong word. There is the growth line, but where the old ends and the new begins there is a slightly rough edge. It's less than the thickness of a piece flaked food and very thin line. It doesn't extend allbthe way around the shell and goes away after a bit. His shell looks like it is thicker where this has happened. Thanks to everyone.

                Might be a lil repair from an accident. If he dropped from tge top of the tank and chippedan edge it would grow a little thickeras it repaired itself
