I just got a new 30 gallon tank for my RES (now 4inches)- an upgrade from a little 3 gallon tank he was getting way too big for---I put the little man in there 2 days ago, and he hasn\'t eaten since!! I\'m a little worried- otherwise he seems active......any advice??

My guess is he\'s just a little scared. He went from 3 to 30 gallons - he is in a new place. You could try putting him back into his other tank for feeding to see if that works.

Hi! Most likely, your turtle just needs time to adjust to his new settings. The same thing happened when my turtles\' house went from 5 gallons to 20. Just keep feeding him (not much, see if he eats the food b/f putting in more...), after a few days, he should be back to normal...
hope this helps :)
