i think you just need to do some reading on the web. that\'s what i did. this site has care sheets and so do many other websites. just look up res care and you should come up with a lot of information.

and i don\'t really know what you mean by mulch. is your tank full of water with mulch on the bottom? look at some pictures of habitats. i have 2 baby turtles they have about 8 inches of water and they really enjoy it as long as they have something to cling to to rest on.

just do some reading good luck

well i have been in your place and it stinks not knowing what to do....this web site helped me tons! first of all each turtle is different and they do have personalities! i feed my turtle (Mr. T)a varity of things. He like the normal turtle pellets that you can purchase at the store, but he loves carrots and meat. i feed him a little of anything and everything but be sure to not overfeed the turtle. Mr. T is in a 10 gallon tank and that\'s to small for him now and he is being put into a 20 gallon long tank soon. I fill the 10 gal tank up a little over the half way point, and he loves to swim as long as he has a place to get out and soak under the light (basking). i have stones at the bottom of the tank which he loves to dig and can be somewhat noisy, and he likes to eat the stones so just watch what you put in.i hope this helps and good luck, they are lots of fun.

Layla you don\'t NEED more water but i\'m sure your turtle would like it a lot if it had more water to swim in! as long as it still can get on a basking area.
