Hello,
I have a quick question about my RES - well my sisters, I am babysitting and haven't a clue about them really.
=He is 4 and pretty social, he likes to watch people walk past him and follow them and I often catch him checking me out when I am sitting across the room then dunking when I look back at him...little sneak (I am sure he has crazy long distance).
Anyways when I take him out to clean his tank and put him in the sink he goes crazy and tries to get out. Almost as if he needs to see what is going on. I am concerned as I want to buy a new tank and am looking to get a plastic tub (rubbermaid style) for now until we can find a good glass one, but if the plastic is slightly frosted will he go insane and try to get out?
Thanks,
Turtle Newbie!
