Ok, is there a reason for destructive behavior.. ie: a turtle rearranging EVERYTHING in their tank. My turts have made a very conscious effort to basically undo everything I've done. Like this morning, the 2 of them joined forced (and yes I sat and watched them) to remove the bubble wand. They both wedged their bodies under it until they got it removed from the side of the tank. Does this mean they are bored??? just hate the bubble wand (or anything else that I put in)?? or what??

They could be bored. Mine use to do that with the fake plants i use. He would just kick the rocks out of that boat shaped thing on the bottom and let the plants float to the top. Now that he has a partner he spends time swiming around with him and lets the plants stay on the bottom.

Mine does the same. Maybe they think it's a game.
