Re: Where do turtles sleep???

My turtle sleeps inbetween my 2 filters

Hes good quiet all night but up and plopping at 7:30 every morning

You know that plopping noise they make when they are trying to get attention.

Re: RES \"crying\"

My RES rarely makes his strange noises ....He does it mostly when he gets surprised like when i take him out of the tank off guard and not expecting me to handle him.

Re: RES \"crying\"

my turtle makes a hissing/snarling sound...What exactly is the hissing about anyway? does he get mad? b/c he never bites or anything...The crying sound must be heartbreaking :(

Re: Calling all RES know-it-all\'s

The water doesn\'t smell bad, but it does have an odor...Its not near the window, but I have lamps and lights...is there any way to reduce the green? I was so frustrated i ended up taking out 80% of the water and refilling it (what a mess).. Its still not crystal clear though ..Thanks for helping :)...
