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.
