i had the same problem (read topic smell)! Do you have carbon in your filter? Well i can tell you it makes miracles!!!! And don\'t feed the turtle in the tak, feed it outside but still in the water!!

Trailrider.........so sorry for \"swearing\" to make my point, didn\'t really think anyone would be offended since the OMG is a prevelant term on message boards and I have certainly seen worse here! Once again I am sorry!

Thanks Luna...........got the carbon and the smell is much better but I guess the water is cycling? because it is real cloudy.

Try to clean the tank and everything first and then put the filter with carbon in again! I think then the water will stay cleaner for longer time!
I even think that is interesting that we take care of res and clean them. I really enjoy in that! Don\'t you? I even think it would be boring if we wouldn\'t have anything to wory about anymore!

yeah, it is pretty interesting how we take care of our \"babies\". I would really miss them if they were not here, I lost a female last year and you would have thought a member of my immediate family passed away, it was terrible. They are awesome creatures!!

I am from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Thanks for all the advice after the last complete clean out I did the water is super clear, I used to use carbon when they were smaller never crossed my mind that it would help th e smell that much. Where are you from Luna?
