My fiance brought home a baby turtle. From the pictures on here, it seems to be a painted turtle or slider, not red ear, but a plain slider. He/she looks like my red ear in color striping, but darker green/black with yellow striping. My question is how to take care of it. I\'m using my red ear\'s old tank, a ten gallon short. But how and what do I feed it. It seems to be healthy. It swims all over the place but won\'t eat. I\'ve had it a week or two if that helps. I\'ve tried tuna, greens, and crushed turtle pellets. Any help would be appreciated. Oh and he\'s about 1.5-2 inches in diameter.
