If you take a look at the patterns on the bottom shell (plastron), they will have unique marks. They do become blotchy and darker later on, but by then I'm sure you can easily tell them apart by then.

Actually their shells also have different dota and pattern, but prolly i noticed that because i handpicked them :D

Also as they age their shells will develop differently. One of mine has a more rounded dome shell the other appears to be flatter.

Black seams are fine, just very thick (wide) seams are an indication of fast growth.

Oh, I do, but I also have a tiny Baby Timmy inside in a 55 gallon tank with two Dalmatian Mollies and ... no legos. I think Baby Timmy wants some legos in there.

Yup saw your blog. 55gallon will take lots of lego to fill up lol.
Actually legos are mainly for the fishes. Without cover they easily get attacked in blind morning
Even a very fast pleco. :'(
