Re: If you need help,ask me!!!!!!!!

In the canister part of the filter, I do not see the water bubbling. When I put my hand in the tank I can feel the water filtering through the out take tube. In the canister part you just cant see the water moving. Does that make senes?

Thanks.

Re: TO BIG?

How big are they and how much have they grown in the past 3 months?

what are you feeding them? If just the pellets, how much at each feeding?

You should add greens, fruit (like grapes) carrots, ect....and the crickets or worms 1x per week to for calcium

Re: TO BIG?

Sometimes if you are overfeeding your turtles they will grow at an unhealthy rate. Overfeeding/too quick growth can cause liver and other organ problems.

What and how much are you feeding them?

How big are they compared to when you got them?

Re: turtle habits changed. sick?

Also, your water temperature is too cold. It should be 78-82. Do you have UVB lighting? You need that too. And what kind of light do you have on your basking spot? You should have a full spectrum daylight heat lamp for that area too. Definately, heat up you water right away. If you dont have all tha...

Re: turtle habits changed. sick?

I have read that as RES get older they eat less often....I recommend you go to the bookstore or library and read up on the habits of your turtle. Are you only feeding your turtle pellets? They should have a varied diet of certain greens, fruits, worms, crickets, shrimp. That may be also part of your...

Re: Frogs?

From the things I have read in different publications, it is my understanding that turtles can be a bit agressive with other animals (ie frogs, ect) so, you might want to consider not housing them togehter.

If I can find which book I saw that I will will let you know.

Re: 3 abused and neglected turtles in local pet store

You are right, however, it is cruel to let those turtles die. Turtle homes will go in and rescue them, so I am told.

Just contact them and see if they will do something, if not, give me the name of the shop and I will do it.

Re: 3 abused and neglected turtles in local pet store

That is horrible. If I were you I would go in there and get all those sick turtles and do the best you can for them to get them healthy. Also, go to www.turtlehomes.org

They rescue abused turtles and find them homes.

The turtles will die, so get them until you can find them a suitable home.

Re: BLACK PROTRUSION + BLOOD ----- HELP!!

I really like your tank. What a set up!

Are those river rocks in Joe\'s basking area? Do you worry about her eating them. My larger gravel are about that size.

If there is no gravel will that be a problem for my turtle\'s claws?

Re: BLACK PROTRUSION + BLOOD ----- HELP!!

I will say some extra prayers that your turtle is ok. I do have a question too. I have gravel in my tank. What should I replace it with? Some of the small river rocks are about the same size of the large gravel in my tank. I am going to switch mine out right away. Please let me know so I can get the...

Re: baby slider diet

It sounds to me like he is growing. I have had my RES for about 4 months and he has doubled in size.Mine started out about the size of yours and he is now just shy of 3 inches. Also, baby res are more carnivorous while they are young. That explains why he doesnt want the leafy vegetables. Try fruit ...

No, Braydon I was talking to you.

Spraggsbraydon2-It sounds like you never learned the golden rule. It seems you have not much positive to say on this board. Maybe you should keep to your own message board that you have been incessantly promoting. Or, better yet, keep it to your self.
