I usually fed my red slider feeder fish, pellets, and dried shrimp but then after i ran out of pellets and fish and the only thing i had left was the dried shrimp. So until i could get more pellets and fish, i fed the trutle the shrimp for a week and a half.Then i had to go on vacation so i left the pellets with my friend to feed the turtle but he forgot and didn\'t feed the trutle for around a week. Now when i came back i fed the turtle fish and pellets but its not eating. What should i do?

Didn\'t feed the turtles for \"around a week...\" how long exactly? Was the turtle getting proper lighting while you were gone? He may need time to adjust to having you around again (kind of like a new turtle adjusting to a new environment). Try tempting him to eat with something smelly to stimulate his appetite (sardines packed in water (rinse again), smelts, boiled white chicken meat, etc.
