Lost Claw in Filter

My turtle got one of his front claws stuck in the filter today and when he tried to pull it out, it ripped the whole thing out of him. He still has the muscle/nerve/skin? that was underneath the actual nail attached. Does anyone know if a new one will grow in its place? What should I look for as far...

Re: strange shell.....

First, be patient, sometimes it takes a while for the people with answers to read the new posts.

Second, is the shell actually turning white or is the shell peeling? If he is growing rapidly as you said, he might be shedding.

Re: creatures you can keep with turtles

I put an algae eater in with my RES, who was only half the size of the fish, and my turtle ate the fish.

moral of the story: if its alive, and you cherish it, dont put it in with the turtle.

she died.

Well, my RES who was just laying around and not eating, finally died. I tried all of the many things that were suggested to me, and nothing helped. No vets around here would treat her b/c of how small she was.

Re: smelly lamp?

if it only smells when the lamp is on, check to make sure that nothing is stuck on/in the lamp that is burning. If there\'s not, i\'d buy a new lamp. You can never be too safe.

Re: What kind of plants!?!

I have 2 baby RES, and I got them 3 of the plastic plants and they absolutley LOVE them. They like to hide in them, and they also like to dig the base up out of the gravel, so it gives them something to do. And it only takes a sec to replant it, so I think they are defianatly worth it.

Re: I\'m wondering about my turtle home!

Fofusu...I used to have an aqua clear filter...I\'ve heard they work great, but make sure it\'s big enough for your tank. I got a mini, and I don\'t have the tank filled up the whole way, so it didn\'t want to suck the water up the tube. I even tried filling the tank up the whole way to get the filt...

Re: My Tank

im using a Ovation 200 submersible filter, and no, the rocks don\'t smell at all. I clean the filter out once every 2 weeks, and i thoroughly clean the tank out maybe once every 2 months.

My RES

I have 2 RES. They are both about 2 - 2 1/2 in in size. I\'ve had them for 5 months. The smaller turtle has adjusted well to his new surroundings, and is very active and eats ALOT, but the slightly larger turtle hasn\'t eaten anything in over 2 weeks, and all he does is sit on the basking rock and s...
