My turtle is 8 months old almost 4 inches long eats twice a day mostly reptomin then I'll add in some greens baby spinach romain lettuce and on Sunday he gets a feeder fish.. But I've noticed lately his shell I hope looks good... Any input would be greatly appreciated thanks for lookin...

I've confirmed he is started to have a pyramid shell so I'm cutting back feeding to once daily of greens and every other day getting pellets. And this weekend he's getting an 80 gallon from a friend. Is pyramid shell something I can reverse because he is younger?

I have pics but there "too large" to post I can send an pm or email if anyone wants to see his shell and maybe help me out? Again thank you in advance for any help.

Minor pyramiding might be reversed but anything more is permanent. Shedding will help smooth it out though. Feel free to send me the pics.
