Re: Is selling $0.25 sized RES legal?

its entirely legal it all depends on the state or country you live in
alot of states in the us make it illegal to sell anything less then 4 inches
but in other states and as far as i know all of canada you can sell a turtle at any size

Re: Size and tank

they should be fine as long as you have basking area and light and the waters warm enough
but remember you see your turtles probably every day you may not notice the little bit they have grown
oh and keep in mind more food dosent equal more growth, just makes fat turtles : P

Re: is this shedding skin on his neck?! (pic)

well all fungus infections are serious
but if you can catch it and get rid of it you should be ok
just get them treated and treat the tank to
so you dont end up with it back
good luck
