Post any questions you have about a turtle indoor setup here. Or if you have a link to your indoor setup picture we would love to see it.

i put in 3 snails and my turtle gobbled them up before i they hit the bottom of the tank it loved them. i wait a while and see if he has any side effects and if he doesnt he has a new food which he/she loves.she chomped ont he shells and spit them out and ate the snail. soo i just hope they can eat them. i did hear they could ear water snails
