ok I have got a red eared slider, I have seen picture of them online and mine looks nothing like those. My RES is a hatchling, it has a bright green color to itand has not a red ear but like an orange stripe on it. Whats up with that? The RES pictures I have seen have RED stripes and are more brown than my bright green turtle. I have purchased a Repti-Sun 5.0 bulb, are those any good?

Congrats on your RES Glen! One of my RES is bright green with red RED stripes (thats Louie). Lestat is slightly bigger, darker with a darker red stripe. I know when they get older they darken. I am betting that once he is in a nice healthy environment with the right lighting, he will pretty up some more!

The ReptiSun is one of the best....good choice. I use it on my RES and when I had lizards. I do believe that RES hatchlings are more bright green then when they reach adulthood.
