Re: Trying to Make Things Right for my Red Eared Slider. Please help me to gauge how he is doing.

What you are doing sounds good to me and I'm sure Patrick appreciates the changes! Have you tried feeding her minnows? Turtles like meat and it gives them exercise to chase the fish too. My girl will only eat "live" food and and pellets. I've tried feeding her fruits and veggies and she doesn't even...

Re: White spot on head - help please

I know this sounds crazy, but that actually makes me feel a lot better. She has been crawling out of her tank and/or trying to crawl out of her tank on her own.

They gave her to the wrong person if they didn't think she'd make it! She was the size of a quarter when she was given to me. Now she's huge! 1...

White spot on head - help please

Hi - My RES developed this white spot on her head this week. It looks awful. I don't know what it is or what to do about it.
