My juvenile slider is very entertaining & I absolutely adore him. I also enjoy all the work I do to take care of him. These turtles make wonderful pets if you can commit to caring for and feeding them properly. They are so darn cute when they're little, but PLEASE refrain from getting one as an impulse purchase.

I have recently aquired a 10 inch specimen named Bob by his previous owners. He is doing quite well in a 240 gallon aquarium. Tank mates include two three inch angels and two two inch Boesmani rainbow fish. I've had no problems with Bob harrassing any of his tank mates....so far. He did, however, trash the few live plants I had.

I have a red eared slider, his name is roland, and he is a baby. He is just fun to look at. when you pick him up it feels like he is trying to tickle you!! He is a new edition to our family (2 fighter fish and a cocker spaniel)

That's a good amount of information here. The only thing I was wondering about was they pyramiding of the shell, where the young/hatcling turtle is fed too much protein too quickly and it causes the shell to grow like a pyramid; unevenly.
I've recently taken in a RES in my area and have easily converted him to Reptomin, and he'll also eat dried krill and brine shrimp, and he loves his frozen blackworms.
