He is one year old and when i woke up this morning, he was dead and his eyes were half open. I put him in clean water to see if he would wake up but nothing. He was active the day before and he was eating and playing around. :( Im very sad.

The picture with the writing is when he was alive ☹️

Piggley and I are very sorry for your lost. If you got her 1yr old from a LPS they have no idea how to keep turtle's and was sick when you got her. Overnight sure it's nothing you did !

Sorry to hear about Flipper. RES are good at hiding illnesses and injuries, it is possible he was sick for awhile.
