halfshell & Kado -- i guess yes. they don't hide when i come around. in fact they pop their heads out to look at me! :P

my dad just saved two more baby sliders from a dreadful BOX WITH NO HOLES IN IT...IN THE DARK...IN A TINY BIT OF WATER! :| :(

the problem is one of the turtles has this boil on it's skin that looks like pus. has anyone seen anything like it before?

the other guy has patches of grey on his shell.

i'm giving them up for adoption and i don't wanna do it if they're sick.
help?!

It looks like it's an abscess and the other one looks to have an infection. I'd keep them separate and make sure they have a good diet, UVB, basking area and some calcium.

i've upgraded to a much bigger rubber maid for my turtles and they absolutely love it! the little ones have moved into their old home and they seem happier too! yay!
i have to improvise considering my parents are still not okay with having a tank in the house. but that's okay because my dad is considering building a large pond for them :)

they use the middle level as a bed lol!
Image

i've put the wood up there 'cause they're used to sitting on it. so maybe it'll teach them that they have to come up there to bask now.

Wow your RESs are getting big! are they only about 6mo old? Hope you can get the little ones healthy...also I don't see much of a difference between have a huge rubbermaid or an aquarium in the house can make, but if they get an out door pond that would be awesome. I live in a condominium so thats pretty much impossible for me.

My little cousins own a baby turtle now :) They love the little guy! He has a temporary home for a few hours. Named him AJ.

Image

Also, I bought a giant dock because the wood I use has started to rot and smells really bad.

I just hope that it can handle the weight of 3 turtles.

he's pretty scared of the girls. i keep them apart.

also, my dad has switched the girls to an all meat diet. we feed them shrimp and worms. is that safe or do they still need their pellets?

As RES get older they eat more veggies than meat. You should still give pellets and some lettuce. Shrimp and worms should be an occasional treat. I'm sure a more experience person will chime in on this too.

By the way, how did you tame your sliders?
We've had ours for a week now and they're still so scared of us. :(
