You might want to remove any gravel/small rocks in tank that are smaller than his/her head.

Torbert was purchased from Petco in June 2012 - he lived in the 20 gallon veggie filter of our Koi Pond outside until October, when we brought him inside to live in his 29 gallon tank...his shell is a little over 4" in length...he likes Porterhouse steak and carrots...

Porterhouse should not be on the menu... are you using any pellets?

I'm sorry, Porterhouse is only an occasional snack - the staple menu is beluga caviar, sushi-grade tuna, Wellfleet oysters, and white Belgian truffles ;)

Does he have a UVA/ UVB light? Is it ok to have a screen like that?

Superman pose! @Into_the_Mystic... if/when Torbert gets a UVB bulb, he should get a larger spaced screen. He'll also need a larger indoor or outdoor habitat soon.

Scrappy and Kurt were rescued from a local landlord whose tenant had left them behind...they love to bask (as does the OT "original turtle" Torbert), and are starting to become less shy about doing it with people around...Still deciding who is going out to pond once it warms up around here...
