Love your tortoise names!!

I agree with Phratz, although I do supplement with Mazuri. Make sure you are supplementing only.
If that little feller is eating, pooping, drinking, and behaving normally than no need to worry. Be glad your little guy likes grasses and weeds, some torts get "Hooked" On pelleted diets and become finicky eaters. I'll admit, I have 1 Marginated tort that is finicky and only wants his Mazuri but soon realizes that when I'm not providing it every day he's gotta learn to eat the other stuff.

They look good!! Slow, steady growth is the key. Maybe back off on feeding the Mazuri to the others and only supplement with it.
