They used to be so happy and beg for food whenever they saw me. Now They run and hide. What have I done??? Is it that I moved them to dry tank? Did I hurt them somehow? I put on their medicine does that hurt? Do they recognise me? Did I scare them so bad with my singing that they never want to see me again?

Dry tank? What\'s that? A tank with no water? Well water turts get nervous when they are out of water. They are much more friendly in water.

I\'m sure everything is OK.

Cheers,

They are probaly just under a little stress right now. Problems with their shell, plus not being in water (which they feel the safest), and your handling them more than usuall as probably just stressed them out a little. Are they back in the water permanently or are you refering to soaks your giving them? Once they are back in permanently, then just give them time, maybe not try to handle them so much. I\'m sure eventually they\'ll be begging for food just like before.:)
