P.S. We recently got a store named Petco and they sale RES, only they are a few years old. They are about 6-10 inches in length. Maybe down the road you could get Dax a lady friend, it's too hard to tell males from females until they are a few years old anyways.

I got my two RES at the local State Fair during the summer. I've also seen them once in a fish store, but I think the owner was personally breeding them. Your turtles behavior sounds normal to me, they are called sliders because they slide into the water at the faintest noise or movement. Mine were ...

I just wanted to add that you should never feed your turtle a cricket bigger than it's own head. My turtles are still under a year old and are growing, but still small, and when I go to the store there are two kinds of crickets, large and small, and I usually try to give them 3 crickets each once a ...

Finding Shrimp

I get freeze-dried shrimp in a container that looks just like one that holds turtle pellets. It's even on the same shelf in the store. My turtles just love them!! I get them at Petco or Petsmart, fairly cheap and they last a long time. Hope this makes finding shrimp easier. Freeze-dried is the way t...

Turtles not eating

I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU. I\'ve had my RES for about 6 months and recently moved them from the countertop to an aquarium stand and they stopped eating.
