Is your water warm enough? I keep mine at 80. For some reason turtles eat better in warm water. Try some romaine lettuce.

Check the water temp. like TurtleMama said. 78-80 degrees F. is good. The warmth speeds their metabolism and makes them more active. Get a submersible water heat if the water can`t be kept at a steady temp. in the above range. And have the basking area about 10 degrees warmer so your turtle will want to get out and bask (important for digestion as well as the shell).

And buy some pellets like Reptomin or Zoo-Meds. They provide a more balanced diet.
