I took my turtle out to get a little fresh air tonight and i noticed that she was breathing really loudly...I\'ve heard that was a sign of a respiratory infection. Anyone have any info? Should I go ahead and take her to a vet, or is it something that will go away on its own? Also, I don\'t think my heater is keeping the water warm enough....anyone have any ideas on a good heater to get?

Two brands of heaters that are reputable are the Tronic and Ebo-jager; for wattage, allow 5 watts per gallon (a filled 20-gallon tank would take a 100-watt heater, for example). There are others, however, and perhaps someone else can recommend another...
