If winter is cold bring them in or they will hybernate. They like warm water about 72 - 85 degrees.

stinky tank

everytime I open the lid of the tank to take a turtle out to play with it the tank smells really bad. Anything I can do to make it stop smelling so much. I was kinda thinking of sticking a little airfreshiner at the top of the tank (not in the water) would that be okay?

I just found out that the water temp should be around 80 degrees for RES turtles I have only had my turtles for about a week. The water now is probably just reg room temp. Should they be okay until I get a water heater?
