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.

ok i started feeding my baby RES some feeder fish yesterday for the first time. i put about 5 fish in and they ate like 1 or 2 of them and left the rest. when i came back from school all the fish were gone (turtles ate them all) with just a few scraps behing. when i went closely to look, their mouths were and still are opening and closing again and again (not big open mouth just small one) and they keep staring. does this mean they want food or are they sick? please reply!!

my turtle has been doing that for years (at least after he eats live food) so far this has caused no problems. I think he is just letting out gas, like burping because turtles wont stop until they get all the fish they can catch so they maybe very full afterwards.
