she needs a variety of food other than fish. in fact, too much fish isn't good for her and should be given only as a treat no more than twice a week. get the turtle pellets they sell at petshops and give her small pieces of carrots.

tips:
get cuttlebone from the bird's section and remove the outer layer then cut it into small pieces and feed them to ur turtle. this ensures she gets the right amount of needed calcium

do u have all the lights and heaters she needs?
