Steve, it never occurred to me that he might not need his clip anymore. I have been dropping the lettuce in the last few times and he seems to enjoy they "hunt" ha ha

How strong is your filter :P I have to leave food away from the filter outtake so it doesn't move too much otherwise the turtles will fixate on me and toss water all over the floor.

Oh for sure! I have the FX5, pretty substantial current! There is a bit of a whirlpool under his dock, he's smart and knows that's where everything ends up :)

With pellets I have to feed and run, cause like you said he just fixates and splashes bunch :) I have two fish that are pushing 5 inches and love turtle pellets ...so I have to be strategic lol
