Make sure you have the proper set up.
Turtles:
Dexter (RES)
Shelby (RES - gone and I feel really really bad).
Miracle (Box Turtle - Given to me after Shelby left us).
Orion (Mississippi Map Turtle).

I would suggest buying only one. Less problems down the road with space and territory.

The store I bought aqua & turquoise @ is still there and has a turtle filter in its tank and uv lite and basking rock... My mom saw the setup and wondered why we didn't get 1 b4 cuz that could've save my turts. I've also showed her some full sized turts that I saw in various places, and she kinda realizes what we should've done... But my dad thinks its too much work... Still

A turtle is a lot of work.. it can be as expensive as a dog or cat. Those kits are often a waste of money too. Get a used tank via garage sale, craigslist, kijiji and go from there.
