well im very happy to say that Yertle is very normal today i woke up and fed her at the usual time i do and she ate then got up on her basking area and basked .....last night she wouldnt eat she just hid in the corner under water only to come up for air...after awhile she sat on the lower rock(underwater but she can sit comfortably and her heads out of the water...)i have in the tank...now she is resting on the big rock (her basking area out of the water)she seems a little spooked by me but she does that some days anyway i want to thank you so much for easing my mind being a first time RES owner i wasnt sure what the fall(2 feet)would do i know they have armor(shell)so to say but still!!!!!!!!!.......i will check in from time to time ....anyone know a easier way to clean a turtle tank besides taking everythiing out to clean it by hand i do this once a week it takes a little over an hour i wash EVERYTHING rocks,basking rocks,and all the other stuff then i take a bucket and scoop out the water ...yertles water gets dirty fast i haev a gravel filter any sugestions for a better stystem and a way to clean it out!!
