I bought two red ear turttles, one is super active, the other is underwater for long periods of time and has his eyes shut a lot! When I first got them I didn\'t have a heater, I got one 2 days later because I heard it could help. He gets up to eat, but sometimes he is under the water not moving for soooo long. How long can they stay under without coming up for air?

I am not sure what the exact time is for them. I do know that mine can stay under for a couple hours.

I think they can hold their breath for a few hours, mine stay underwater for a long time, I think when there active they stay under water for a few hours, if they are sleeping, they can hold their breath like all night i think.
