He Everyone,
There is an interesting comparison of turtle foods and I thought I would share it. It seems that Zoomed is rated highly, not what I would have expected.

No problem, thanks for posting something you find interesting. If anything, that blogger needs an update :)

Omega One is pretty easy to find in most pet stores, I would suggest it over anything on that list. Variety is also very important, I try to cycle between 3 different brands.

Thanks for posting, I don't know if I've seen that before. I came online today to decide what food to get. The first time I got the Zoo Med it was because nothing was on sale so it was the best value and I needed pellets. I wasn't sure if my turtles would go for it, since most of the pellets they've had are sticks, and zoo med is much larger pellets, but they gobbled it down like anything else. I liked that it had lower protein too, so I might be getting that one again ;)

So how long would I feed the ZooMed Growth? As in, when do adult RES stop growing?

Just use your judgement, maybe after they reach 4 inches?
