Looks like growth has been a bit irregular. It should smoothen out a little once she sheds regularly.

From what I read a consistent variety is what she needs. So at the moment she ( and a RES and DBT ) get red leaf lettuce everyday , pellets and dried shrimp ever two days and ever 7-9 days gets blood worms. Sound average to you or would suggest something further more?

Shrimp and blood worms can be skipped. Red leaf is good as a staple and occasionally mix it up. Same with the pellets.

From what I can take , variety matters most so that was my attempt at it. I'll try to mix it up with something else better for them.
