In October of last year we purchased (adopted) 3 red eared sliders. They\'ve grown from the quarter sized little ones they were. We are now wondering what sexes we have in our tank. Two of them have developed an oblong shaped shell while the other has remained round. Which is which? And are we in trouble with a 5 gallon tank? We weren\'t informed they\'d grow like I\'m now reading they will.
