Hey guys, I\'m a new pet turtle owner, & I\'m looking for some tips.

I have a spiny soft-shell turtle. Right now he\'s in a plastic aquarium, w/ rocks & water. He\'s been eating worms & shrimp that I bought at the store.

But I\'m going shopping today. I have a limited budget, but I was curious what else I should get him. I know I need a lamp, but what else. Help please!

u should check out Austin\'s turtle page...they have a care sheet about the spiny softshell...www.austinsturtlepage.com
u go to the care sheet, and in the softshell section...it seem like it more delicate to care of a softshell.....but don\'t forget to keep us post and i would love to see a pic of ur turtle...:)
