I read that some people leave their RES out for 2-3 hours. I only leave mine out for about an hour but they are out a couple times a day. Hope this helps.

RES can breath underwater in a way, their skin can drain oxygen out of the water or something.
Still, this isn\'t very effective so they don\'t tend to use these too much, unless they go into hibernation in which they\'re underwater for weeks.
