Re: UV LIGHT AND HEATING IMPORTANT QUESTION!!

They do always need to be heated. A 100 watt bulb does provide some heat, but I didn\'t find it good enough. Also, it could make their basking area to hot for them to bask on if it is to close to the water. Their water needs to be kept at 78-82. An underwater heater is your best bet on this. A UVB b...

Re: Can Peninsula Cooters and RES mix?

Here is a web site that I hope will help. It mentions them together (having similar habits and stuff), but aside from this I don\'t know. http://www.nsis.org/wildlife/rept/turt-cooter.html

Re: UVB light

Thanks chanman. The glass is out and all is well. :D I ended up having to remove it because the light wouldn\'t rest without the holder and after spending $150 on my new set up the thought of spending another $25 on a UVB clamp on light was just to much right now. :)

UVB light

I bought a new tank today and the lid cover has a layer of glass for the light to sit on. Will the light (UVB) lose it\'s effectiveness by trying to go through the glass or is that only when you use the sunlight as your source of UVB? Thanks.

Re: PLEASE...

You type in the colon symbol, : and a capital D together without spacing. :D If you want a regular smile that it is colon, : and then shift 0. :) The HELP page of the message board can help you with any other symbols.

Re: Scared Turtle

Thanks for your comments. We have our turtle set up right next to our couch. I love to watch him and today he came up to bask while I was watching a movie. I looked over and there he was. As soon as I turned to him he looked like he was going to hop back in the water, but he just stared at me and I ...

Scared Turtle

Hello, I am new to the site and so far I love it. It has been so informative, I have learned a lot of stuff. I have a question that I would like to ask. We have had our turtle for over a month now and he/she is still terrified of us. He is thriving and healthy (which I am happy about) and I enjoy wa...
