Exclamation Baby Tortoises aren't growing HELP

hello I have a baby sulcata tortoise and a baby leopard tortoise they are both being housed in the same tortoise table which is about 4 feet wide and 6 feet long i kept them outside during the spring and summer and they are now inside for the winter, but I got them last march and when i weighed the sulcata he was 57g and the leopard was 24g and they are the same weight today. I feed them a mixture of fresh spring mix as well as romaine from time to time and I soak them about 3 times a week they have fresh UVB and an ample basking spot. They are both CB. If anyone could help it would be much apricated.
Thank you,

Open tables should also not be used. Read here for the best husbandry methods:
