Heater Question?

I am looking for a heater for my turtle tank and I was wondering what kind to get. I ask because I was told that my turtles have gone into a hybernation because my water is to cold 72-74 (that is why they hardly eat now). Plus I only have half of the tank full and I can\'t find a heater that doesn\'...

We\'re Not Hungry Anymore.

I have 2 2yr old RES and for about the last 2 months they have slowly stopped eating their turtle food. I have tried other kinds of turtle pellets but they never eat them. The only things that they want to eat is chicken, shrimp, or goldfish. I\'m worried that they aren\'t getting all of their daily...

Put Up Your Dukes?

I just introduced my 2 res to their new home 33gl. I noticed 2 days later that they were putting their front legs infront of their heads and then they would swim at each other. WHY? They have never done this before. Thanks in advance for your answers.
