well, your turtles need a uvb source, i use Uvb light bulb and reptomin food stick ( vitamin D-3)

It helps them process vitamins so they dont get sick.

Yes, they need a place to bask.
Turtles are "cold-blooded" - they regulate their temperature by moving around in their environment. They need a warm, dry place.
Wild turtles live in rivers and climb out on rocks and logs to sit in the sun.
Don't force a turtle to bask but they need to have the option.
