Meet my baby Korni... :mrgreen: ...Everybody says he's something else... He is so active, and so friendly, and he likes to doton of crazy moves (I'm actually laughing while writing this and imagining him).... Sometimes he stand in the corner of an aquarium and pushes his head in the glass and swims so fast and hard, its hillarious to watch... He likes his shrimps, and he's eating from my hand. He was unfortunately very ill these days, poor guy had pneumonia and was on antibiotics, and his eyes are swallen, but after few days of constant care and medicating, he is doing so much better, his craziness is back and his appetite is back, he's swimming and doing crazy thing, but cant seem to fix his ees... So fingers crossed for my bab, as I am hoping vitamin A+D3 will help him cure faster....

Hi, welcome to the forum! As I mentioned in the other post, you can try something like cod liver oil for the eyes. His shell needs a bit of cleaning, though that can wait until he's recovering and eating.

Thats what I wanted to ask about. Can I use baby toothbrush, I+m afraid he wont like ones for big people (lol). I try sometimes to gently cuddle him over the head, sometimes he's ok with that but most of the times he just pulls it in... I'm trying to prepare him for scrubbing, you know... I don't know if he+s gonna like it, but I guess I gotta do it soon. I gave him A+D3 oil drops, I put drop or two over his food, and he's opened his eyes two days ago finally, it's not still what it supposed to be but we're progressing. But still I dont know how to make him eat those reptomin baby sticks, or any vegetable, he just wants to eat schrimps, and last night a small cricket dropt in his water, and he ate him before i could get him out, is it ok for him? perhaps If I only offered him vith sticks or vegetable, maybe them he'll have to eat it? I also read that baby turtles are meateaters until they began to grow... I just want this little guy to be happy and healthy... I'm changing his water on a daily basis, and his temp is 27-28 celsius, has a filter and a heating lamp, basking area, but most of the time he sleeps wheres he's half on dry and half in water, and most often he lays on the filter lol...

A soft toothbrush can work, but again, I would wait until everything else is resolved. Crickets are OK, not much nutrition unless gutloaded. How about live minnows? Hold it by the tail and let it wiggle in front of his face. Once he eats a few, go back to the pellets.

Yeah, but he doesnt want to eat pellets at all. I tried three kinds but he either smells it and walk away or he bites a bit then spit it out. He only wants to eat shrimps. So I dip shrimps into vitamins then give it to him. And for those live things, its a no go hahaha. Im afraid of insects and little live stiff. Lol.

But you're sure he's eating shrimp and the cricket? You might have to try some of the live stuff... minnows can work well sometimes. You just need to get him to eat a bit and transition him to a normal diet.

He is eating dry shrimps and dry stuf...I also give him some chicken breasts (coocked of course - not salted), I was just worried how can I put some vitamins in him from natural sources, like from vegetables or fruits, u know? Because at this moment the only way for him to consume vitamins is by me dipping his shrimps in vitamin drops (which i do on a daily basis). I read on a few places that baby red sliders are exclusively meat eaters, and won't do veggies. But maybe when they get older. And then I have tons of those green pelet stuff which are filled with vitamins and minerals, and he wont eat them. Only meaty food lol. I'm wondering if u understood my uestion int he first place. Its not like he doesn't eat he eats, and he can eat always, but he eats only special food lol. I was juts wondering is there any way i can get him to eat veggies and fruits

Once he is doing well and having an appetite, switch to a good pellet. Don't worry too much about veggies/fruits. Avoid too much meat/protein and focus on getting him to take pellets. Where did you get the green pellets, and what brand is it?

I bought them in a pet store. I needed to ordere it from another town since our little town has one pet store and it helda just fishy sruff. I have tetra repto min menu and tetra repto min baby. But he doesnt want to eat pellets. Its the only problem. I cant seem to make him eat them. Im trying now for a few motnhs and refuses it. Any ideas on How to make him eat it? Perhaps if its the only thing i give him so he has to eat it or what? Any ideas on it?? Tnx

Very cute! Is there a very dark area on the side of his shell? As for getting him to eat, have you tried crumbling the pellets into some other foods he likes? Maybe a small amount of tuna or chicken? There's also recipes where you can make/design your own treats for him.

To make mine eat, I opened a brined tuna can and soak the pellets in that water. Never had to do it twice!
Also, if you keep feeding your turtle with other food when they refuse pellets, they have no reason to eat them.
