that's a mating dance, but also could be a territorial dispute. One telling the other to get out of his space. How big is the tank? How many turts do you have in there?

If you have the money, they're big enough now for a larger tank. Think 10 gallons per inch of turtle. You've got 9 inches of turtle in there already. Look for at least 100 gal.

they will be as long as you've got all the other essentials. My turts are ready for an upgrade too but it'll have to wait..long story.
