As far as I can tell from the pictures they both look very nice! It is amazing at how different rates these guys can grow. And it is very interesting to compare the growth data, husbandry and diet of various animals and the corresponding results.
Some of it might be genetic too. A friend of mine has some huge, over 20 years old adults (up to 43 cm in SCL), whereas I just saw a 45 year old female last week, that was in the 30 cm SCL range. All have comparable growth in terms of none to very slight pyramiding.
Thanks for sharing the pictures,

Gaby
