We just got our first Red Eared Slider....( we've had them for one day) and we are very happy. The lady did not tell us about buying a filter... so I guess we have to add that to our list.

I wondered if anyone can help me with two questions.

1. What kind of Plants would the turtles like best?

2. Is the ReptoGuard Turtle Health Conditioner a good thing? I noticed in just one day it has kinda made the water just a little cloudy. Perhaps the filter would help with this.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I have had a common snapping turtle for almost 2 years now. I found him as a 1.5" baby crawling down the side of a road by a corn field, He now has a large tank and plenty of food. He is a little agressive and eats about 10 fish a week, and a baby mouse every once in a while (in a separate tank as it gets a little bloody). But I have always loved turtles and and looking to get a new tank for a spiny shoftshell turtle in the near future. OH by the way his name is Bags McBic and is about 3.5" now.

Hi, I bought my pig nose turtle as a little baby measuring 5cm. It has outgrown my aquarium and is enjoying my backyard pond with a few mates; a brazillian turtle, a 1m arapaima gigas, a florida gar, and a couple of cat fish. I never thought it could get to its current size, 45cm shell, and is doing well feeding on plant debris, fish, pellets, and plants surrounding the pond. I agree, it is one of the most interesting looking turtles I've seen. Cheers

I've just purchased 2 map turtles, they're only babies and they seem very panicky when anyone goes near them. Is this normal? Also what should I be feeding them, as i've been told they need protein rather than vitamins at this stage? So I'm feeding them blood worm cubes, is this o.k?

I've had a red ear slider for about 2 1/2 years now and his shell is about 3-3 1/2 inches long. I got him when I was about 9 or something. He is my baby! He follows me when I walk to see him, and when I feed him he tries to get out. We recently got him a bigger cage and he loves it. I call him shamoo but his real name is sammi. And now I got another baby slider, cami, a few days ago and she isn't eating, but I just think shes nervous. I keep her in a smaller cage and sammi tries to come at her, but I stay there to try to comfort her. I pick her up all the time and her nails tickle a lot. Sammi has freddy kruger nails! thats what me and my mom say:-]. I think you should consider getting RES's as a pet considering they are so easy to take care of, and they will keep a child very busy as well, as sammi and cami have done for me and my cousins :-]
