More info would help out here, like what you\'re setup is like. Is everything proper for a water turtle? Temperatures, UV lighting, etc. Take a look at the care sheets on this page to make sure that it\'s not something in his environment that might be causing his lack of appetite.

Did you just get the baby RES?
Either the temperature may be too cold, or it just doesn\'t like pellets. What I would try doing is, try to feed it a variety of foods first, something thats more appealing than pellets, like dried shrimp etc.
hope your RES eats soon~

please check ur temperature in the tank
having a heat source, espcially a basking lamp, is essential. No appetite, swollen eyes, sluggishness of my baby RES are all cured after i gave her proper heating.

so be sure u have a basking lamp

Has your baby res started eating pellets yet? I got mine 3 days ago. Of the 3 things I fed it, it eats romaine lettuce, dried shrimp but not the pellets which has alot of vitamins it is probably missing. Kind of worried about them.
