From my understanding pyramiding will never go away but hopefully over time and with proper care it will grow into the pyramiding which should be less obvious...I guess it all depends on how bad the pyramiding is. My 4 year old has some slight shell bumps (pyramiding) and over the past 2 years he's grown quite a bit and the bumps are less obvious than they were before...and I think that had a lot to do with natural diet, sunlight, and just allowing him to be a tort. I have a 2 year old who's shell is perfect with absolutely no pyramiding and I give the guy a high five for the way he raised her. Can you post pics?
I would allow free access to grass...sunlight, shade, water...i treat mine with flowers, hibiscus, mulberry leaves and catctus pads occasionally. I also keep a combo of timothy/bermuda hay down for grazing when grass isn't always plentiful.
