I don't think you can make them eat it, they either like it or not, it is kinda like your mom making you eat broccoli or cauliflower or spinach :lol: :lol:

They're not eating? What are the temps of the water and basking area? (Too cool and they won't want to eat). A water temp of 76-78F and basking them of 88-90F is good.

BTW, bloodworms contains little nutritional value and shrimp is high is protein. They should be occasional treats.

I'd gotten my turtles some "turtle food" is 100% insect larve. Gave them some I think 2 times, and they didn't eat it ether time. Gave up and now I have fish food and they love it. I guess if they don't like it, don't worry about. If you know they like something else, stick with it, and try new things in moderation and don't bother trying to force it, cuz you can't force them to eat it if they don't like it.

i'm surprised bcz they usually like treats (like how we like snacks)..keep it there and they will eat it when they want to :)

i really don't think those things are too healthy for the turtle to eat.

you should stick with turtle food. it'll have a picture of a turtle on the box.. wardley, reptomin, zoomed.. try something along those lines. they're forumlated just for turtles.

i have hatchlings.. i mix their foods up all the time between different brands because each one contains different things. (sometimes) and i like to give them a variety.
