Re: question about breeding and water temp........

its better to think about turtles as there size, they breed at about 5 inches

keep ur temp at 76-82, mines at 79, if i were u i\'d keep in touch w/ the store and wait until they get a submersable heater, letting the water get too cold can cause a respitory infection.
