try having a separate tank or plastic container with some water in it. you should not feed a turtle with no water because their digestive system requires water while eating to work. just use a medium sized plastic container and take a bit of water from the main tank and feed him in that. no food will rot in your tank, and you can ensure hes/shes getting her veges! also, try making the turtle jello shots, its loaded with good veges and my turtle loves it!

i tried feeding her in a separate tank today, and it worked great though she was a bit anxious a while after. thanks a lot for the good tips ;'D though i wont be able to try that jelly thing. i dont think the gelatine they sell here is very good to feed a turtle, and most of the ingredients arent available lol
how do veggie clips work and where do i get them? o.o
Thank you, Ashley! I had tried for so long to make that point, but gave up because people seemed fixated on the saliva explanation. Many aquatics have reduced saliva glands (some none), but it is the fixed tongues that are the main reason why they need water to eat (to help push the food down).
