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.

It sounds like the stone is too large for your turtle to expell. S/he sounds like she needs a vet. The list at www.arav.org/USMembers.htm may have one near you. Good luck.

thank you for your reply. I think she may have passed it while we where gone. There was a rock in the water and I was afraid that she might eat it again but I guess not. I will keep a close eye on her though. Thanks again
