My turtle has an eye infection. I read on the first aid to use Salen Solution. After applying a few drops to his eyes he already seems a little better. My problem is, this might sound bad, I dont know what type of turtle it is. I think it is a red ear turtle because of the two red marks on his head. I have him in a 20 gallon tank filled half way with water with a heater. I am not even sure if he is suppose to be in water because I see other pictures of the same looking turtle in water tanks and dry land tanks. Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

If its a red ear slider it should be in a aquatic setup. Red ear sliders shouldnt be housed in terrariums, your set up sounds fine for now, does it have a basking area???
