RES are aquatic turtles. you need the water level at least as high as they are long so if they flip over they can turn over. the whole tank should be water with a small part land so they can get out and dry off. they can\'t swim in a pool of water. they live in water and come on to land to bask. mine even sleep in the water. you shouldn\'t use mulch either. i recommend you look at setups and look at a care sheet.
