I have 2 2yr old RES and for about the last 2 months they have slowly stopped eating their turtle food. I have tried other kinds of turtle pellets but they never eat them. The only things that they want to eat is chicken, shrimp, or goldfish. I\'m worried that they aren\'t getting all of their daily vitamins and so on like they would if they were eating their pellets. I even got them some new pellets that is to help get their appetite back but they won\'t eat it, even when I mix it with their other food. If anyone could give me any suggestions on what I should do then I would appreciate it. Thanks

They might have gone into hibernation. They slow down a lot and stop eating as much. How warm is your water? It needs to be around 75-80 degrees unless you want them to hibernate. That could be the problem. Good Luck!
