I just got two RES turltes and set up their habitat. I placed them in a 10 gallon tank. One turtle will freely swim around and get air onthe surface, but the other one crawled at the bottom an can\'t swim or at lerast refuses to anyway. What Should I do??

Keep a distance ....and observe if it surfaces(i guess it must...or it\'ll drown)..

It must be shy...give it time..In the meanwhile check out sites for res diseases and see if any symptom matches...set up the basking area(UVA / UVB) light

how big are ur turtles....10 gallons is too small for 2 adult turts

Basicallly give them a few days(1 of my turtle is a bit shy as compared to the other...)
