Hi there

My name is Leo and I have just bought myself 2 Red Ear Sliders, about 2 months old. I have the entire setup, Basking light, Basking Rock, Water heater and filter.
All the tempretures are correct, they are both eating and the tank is quite large . One is more active than the other and swims around alot and the other is just basking and sleeping all day, and the one that is more active sometimes tries to bite or nip the other one. I am just slightly concerned and I don't know what to do. They are both males. I don't know if they show aggression at such an early age or if they are still adjusting to their new environment or what.
Any help or advice will be greatly appreciated.

I would separate them. My turtles all get along but I have them in a large tank. See sig. If they are all ready biting it's not a good sign.

Are you certain both are eating? How big are they?
