I've been feeding pellets everyday based on this info. http://www.redearslider.com/pellets.html
The third sentence says "Hatchlings or turtles under a year old should be given pellets daily." At one point on here I saw someone say every other day. I commented that I must be overfeeding, because I fed my hatchling everyday. I was then pointed to the above link and told everyday for hatchlings. I certainly appreciate you chiming in and the info you've provided.
There is a lot to learn when it comes to turtle keeping. Especially when you were told you had a girl (no way to know right now), only need a 10 gallon aquarium
, no equipment
and could use water straight from the tap.
I'm not sure how old my turtle is. I got her at the end of July. Not sure how big she was then. I'm guessing around two inches long now (I'm gonna have to measure). I don't think it looks like she's grown much at all since I've had her. I have had at least one person say they think she has grown. I sure wish I knew for sure how old she is.
How many turtles do you have? How big are they?
