I have a hatchling Red Ear Slider and a hatchling Eastern Painted Turtle they are about the size of a nickle and are now living in a 5 1/2 gallon tank soon to be 20 gallon. What is the rate of growth for the turtles? Will they grow to full size in a year? About how big will they be in a year or 2? I am very interested in raising these turtles in what I like to call \"The Right Way\". All help is appreciated, I\'m a newby at this. Both are captive bred and are eating well.

I don\'t know how soon they slow down, but I have a baby RES who just turned a year, and she\'s about 3 1/2 inches now. They grow REALLY fast at that age :)
