>>I think I am doing all the right things and still my going on 3 tort is getting a bit of the raised bumps on his shell. Feed mostly grass and clover mix, sunlight in the summer, UVB mercury vapor bulb in the winter and a soak every few days. I have heard that a bit of humidity in the sleep are helps too. I have recently changed his substrate to coir fiber maybe that will help keep it a bit moister.

Let us know how it goes for you. It'll be interesting to know what works for you & what doesn't.
I've never had to house one indoors, our girl was already big enough when she got here to stay outside so I've not had to worry about humidity, substrates & such.
