I just baught a new turtle after losing my other one a few days ago and don\'t understand why or how it died.I have a few questions on how to care for my new turtle so that anything like this won\'t happen again. How long can it stay out of the water if I\'m holding? How often should I change its water? How do I know how much water to put when I change it? What kind of light should I use tell I get the one that it needs? Is there a way of telling how old it is? Does putting it on top of the tv or next to it or anything with radiation waves kill it? I have more questions but I will return later to ask more.

Are you putting the new turtle in the same tank? Since the cause of death is unknown make sure you clean the tank thoroughly before putting the new turtle in to ward off any diseases in the living space. Wash it with 5% bleach and clean all plants/rocks.
