Hello Everyone,

I\'m a new mother of a RES and new to this forum. Georgie, my new baby, is about 2\". What size can I expect him/her to be in a year? Does tank size and/or water change frequency make a difference in growth? Current home is a filtered/20 gal. long.and water is changed every two to three days. Also, what about diet? Currently being fed pellets, krill, shrimp and greens. Any help will be greatly appreciated. I want to give Georgie a very healthy, happy, long life. Thank you!

hi pearlgreenbeetle:)
welcome to the board..first of all ur current setup is good enough but u might have to upgrade to a larger one soon since it is typical for georgie\'s size now..the diet is perfect for now but how often do u feed ur turtle? do u have any basking rocks? filters? heaters? UV lights?
ut\'ll be great if u post pix for ur baby:)

ok so welcome again..have a look at the care sheets and am sure u\'ll get what u need from this site:)
