Shelly lives in her own tank, and speedy and slowpoke live togeather in my big stock tank. I hope to god my tank never breaks, would be so hard to replace!

They look good though a little jagged scutes indicate fast growth. How much are they fed?

For speedy and slow poke they get abiut a dozen or so pellets to share everyday. Cuddle bone is always in there, and sometimes they get some left over meats. Idk about shelly since I just got her but she's apparently a few years old. I'm assuming she's older then mine but idk.

My 18month old son loves turtles he always wants to feed them, I let him sometimes but not often because he likes to put in way too much so I don't normally feed the next day after he feeds them.

Sort out the pellets in a pill box, so you know they won't get more than they're supposed too.
