Re: Convince

yes thats true, but they have a less likely chance, becuase in your home, you know whats in your habitat, and the feeder fish you buy are not diseased. Wild fish may have west-nile and since turtles eat them raw (not cooked) they might get it. trust me on this one.

Re: Basking Help..Will this work??? Pics of the setting up

replace the bottom rocks with calci sand and play sand. the turtle will dig and hide int he sand and the calci sand will glow in the dark and give your RES vitamins. Be sure to wash the play sand about 4-5 times until clear water appears. no need to wash the calci sand.

Re: New SetUP

get rid of the 42 gallon plastic tub, the plastic will eventually melt given the right basking spot of 80-85* farenheit. invest in a 55 gallon acrylic that was meant for water animals.

Re: Eastern painted turtle \"rescue\"

get more fish. and put more longs in. The \"pet\" fish wont be there for long, considering the turtle will eat them. go to the local pet shop and buy 50-60 feeder guppies the turtle will eat them (not the worms) and the left over fish will breed so you dont have to buy more.

Re: Not Basking.....

somtimes they bask when your not home, try that. mine will not bask if the conditions arent right. like music, computer on. it needs to be totally quiet so the turtle is in tranquility then when you open the door he\'ll jump back in the water like a bullet.
