I\'ve read about alot of you putting your RES\'s outside during warm weather. Last winter severybody was telling me to keep there water temp. constant. Will it hurt my RES\'s to put them in the sun where the water is going to get warmer than the constant 78 degrees I keep there tank water at? I set them up a little kiddy pool on our deck and I keep a check on the water. Today is the first day I put them in it and they love it. I\'m just worried about the temp. change when I put them back in there tank this evening.

I was thinking of getting a kiddy pool outside my self, but i plan on putting my turtle outside when I am present. You do sort of have to watch the temp because with the direct sunlight, it will make the pool hot. You might want to make a shady area for them to cool off.
