I found three baby YB slider turtles in NJ. My parents said I could take them home and care for them until their shells hardened so it would be more difficult for something to eat them. Two shells hardened a little, and one barely has changed. Is this a sign of poor tank setup... What age do they harden? They are almost 6 months old now.

Do you have ultraviolet lighting? It\'s key for their shell to harden.
