Just wanted to say hi! I'm brand new to this forum and new to turtles in general. I've only had Wilson for a little over 2 months now. You guys got any advice on keeping Willy happy and healthy? :mrgreen:

Welcome to the forum! Main advice is to not overfeed, and more water is better. What's his tank like?

Very nice setup. UVB lighting should be above the basking area too. I'd also remove any of those rocks that are smaller than his head. Wilson looks pretty comfy, but you will want to extend the protective area because he will at some point escape.
