It's been five weeks since my turtle ate. And I tried feeding her vegetables, raw fish, fruits, guppies, and other edible food for turtles, but it didn't work :(
Is it possible because it's summer here?
Her aquarium is 14 inch long and 6inch width. She have a dry area where she can bask and a lamp at night. Her water is around an inch high. She is around 2 inch big. :msgreen:
She used to swim a lot, but now she always stay in land and sleep. And sometimes when she sees me she unusually bobs her head back and forth. :| ?

How warm is it? How long have you had her? 5 weeks is a very long time, I think you need to see a vet. To give her a boost, try soaking her in a mix of water and unflavored Pedialyte (1:1) and leave in some crumbled up turtle pellets in there. Good luck!
