I\'m very sad today because one of my turtles pasted last night. I\'m not sure what happen. The shell on the bottom was really soft. I have 5 other turtles in the tank. In the last week I recently got 3 new baby red-ear sliders. I\'m just wondering if maybe the new babies couldh have had a sickness? Could anyone help me and let me know why my turtle pasted. Maybe there is something I\'m doing wrong? Please help!!!

You should NEVER under any circumstances introduce new turtles into an established habitat until after they have been quarantined. Many turtles purchased from pet stores often have illnesses because many of the employees do not know how to properly care for them. It is highly likely that one of the new ones could have a health condition.

Also, I am very sorry for your loss. I feel like a heel for not mentioning that.
