Hi Mark,
Your tort looks great. Such smooth shell growth. You can tell he's been well looked after. Great photos too. Thanks for sharing.
Kind Regards
Freddy

Hi Mark - this was the first forum I joined and though I might post elsewhere too, this one has a special place in my heart. When I started out I really didn't have much of a clue, but someone on here was really helpful and friendly but I never felt i was being made to feel bad. I got a few nudges in the right direction. 
 
We have a special group of people here but we need a few more of them - welcome!!


SW was the first I went on all those years ago the last time I signed in on there was 2009 and RFUK was 2007 ! To be honest though I like the layout of this forum and I like it how its specific to hermanns ! I just wish there was more user participation :)

This is a lovely forum Mark. I think most members will look and maybe some participate on a variety of forums.... But there are favourites.
Some forums are very big and although give great advice they tend to miss out with the 'personal, friendly' touch that is so important. This was my very first forum and I love it..... X x x hugs x x

Hi Mark,
Splat looks fantastic, I hope my little Pebbles shell grows so perfectly. You have done great job there. I agree with above, this forum is really friendly and helpful. This forum has given me so much more accurate information then other forums I gazed over ;)
