Our Res turtle is about 1 1/2 inches. We have a 10 gallon tank, a Zoomed uvb and heat lighting kit, a 90 gph Repto filter, a heater ( don't remember what type), a basking dock and thermometer for the water. What else do we need? What about a thermometer for basking area? Also what are the proper steps for cleaning the tank? Any info on anything for our RES care and tank care will be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Welcome to the forum! Do you have a submersible water heater? Your turtle will grow quickly, so hold off on upgrades until you know the gender.

Thank you. The heater is submersible. How long before we can tell if its a male or female?

When the turtle is close to 4" long, you should see some male characteristics.
