Dont stress this is perfectly normal. Your turtle is just getting us to his new environment. Give him some time and he will began eating. My RES did the same thing when I got him and now he doesnt stop eating! You might want to check your temperature as well. It needs to be around 75 degrees or so. This can also be a factor for not eating. It will just take time. Turtles can go awhile without eating as well so it should be fine. Good Luck!
