Hey,
I thought it would be fun to open a thread with 'before and after' pictures, in other words a growing up thread.
I'll start it up with a P. regalis, this is how it was (october 2002):

Wow...the A. genic. grows fast. I really need to order about a half dozen different Ts soon or I'm gonna have a stroke. Thanks for sharing your pics!

Damnit there's that coin we're thinking of importing again...it's mockery, mockery, I tell you. Please distort the map or put Norway on it ? :/

I was on my way to bed, but I checked on the T's first......lo and behold, my GBB had molted again...and she's only been fasting for 2 days. Usually she fasts for at least 2 weeks. Snuck that one up on me.

Cool, that's exactly the way my GBB looks now, very beautiful!
I have dug up another one of my favourites, the A. versicolor: this is what it looked like when I bought it in June 2002, very small:
