Re: Yaddle's New Outdoor Pond

Re: water surface oil-like slick or film

Re: growing Anubias in a seperate tank

Anubius would be a terrible choice as a feeder. I grow it in my planted tank and it's probably doubled in size in 2 years.

Re: RES exposed to direct sunlight

I've never heard of this sort of thing. It all seems very strange, as turtles in the wild sit in the sun for hours at a time. Mine sit outside the pond in 100 degree weather. I think there is something else afoot here.

Re: Edible Floating Plants and Feeder Fish?

Re: Egg Season Started Early This Year

Turtles are such divas when it comes to laying eggs.

My big 15 year old has a whole pond to her self. She has a 4ft. basking area/nesting box (2ft. of sand) and still chooses to lay her eggs in the water every year.

Re: Edible Floating Plants and Feeder Fish?

Floating plants like duckweed, hyacinth and water lettuce would be your best choice.

Re: Turtle has eggs!! Help!

Fill a tub or container with about 4" of sand or a sand/dirt mix. Let her in there for an hour and see if that helps her.

Re: Basking docks?

How is is your tank?

I don't think there are any basking dock that will really be comfortable to a turtle that size. Cork bark may be good.
