I had them in the tank last nite.. i left the room and i came back and the female laid an egg in the water and the male ripped the egg open and hte entire tank was cloudy


then later today i put them in a basin and the female laid another egg and the male turtle ripped open the egg and there was \'yolk\" all over the container

will this kill my turtle??
and when will this female stop laying eggs.. i have 4 in incubation.. i trew one out and about 4 were lain in the water and never made it...

can i stop them from mating... they are really starting to annoy me

you have to make sure that the female has a sandy area to leave the eggs in the male is thinking that they are not fertale because they are not being put in the sand
