I have measered my turtle and he is about 8 inches. How often should I feed him and what is everything that he needs or can eat? I give him aquatic turtle pellets and feeder fish. He loves both of them but always seems to want more food. How much should I feed him?

RES are opportunistic eaters, meaning, they will eat when they can because in the wild it may be a long time until their next meal, go to the following page to read on what to feed your turtle:http://www.turtlecare.net/food.htm

Your turtle\'s Straight Carapace Length (SCL)is 8 inches? (This is the length of the shell from the back of the neck to the end of the scute above the tail and does not include the curve of the shell.) Do you know how old your turtle is?
