So, I bought 6 baby RES turtles in Chinatown. I felt sorry for their poor living conditions so I decided rescue them. Well, the following day I bought a 40 gallon tank, filled 2/3 water and 1/3 water and 5 inches deep with water. My setup has two filter system, a waterfall, fresh water plants and feeder fish. I have the UV light, heater set at 82 degree, a heat lamp. The feeder fish are to big for the turtles at the moment, and I tried finding them baby shrimp, krill, and pellets they are ignoring it. I see them eating the plants though.
My question, I know baby turtles need more protein, but how do i get them to eat the protein? 3 days old.
P.S. I will be building a outdoor pond next spring, big enough for all six (probably a quarter of backyard) filled with feeder fish-comets, feeder guppies, bamboo shrimps.
