Yesterday I got 4 baby RES (Still had their egg tooths on but its out now) I actually wanted 1 but I just couldn't resist! their so cute! :P I know I have to separate them someday, but since my dad owns a pet store, my dad said I can take as much tanks I need :P And I do my best to take care of them.
I'll post pics soon.

Well congrats on the additions. And definitely take advantage of your dad's offer on the tanks, you'll need them. Unless you want to buy a 400 gallon tank.

Once they get to four inches, he could always sell them if you need to let them go. Of course that could be hard. That would be fun to hang out in a pet store. Lucky pup!

Wow, that's a lot of turtles! When I got mine, they had their egg teeth too. They were so tiny. How big are yours?

That's funny you named one of them "Butters". Is that inspired by South Park? My favorite show! I considered naming mine after some of those characters, but since I don't know what sex they are, I thought a girl named Stan might be weird. :lol: But hey, if "Butters" turns out to be a girl, you could always call her "Marjorine"! Get it? :lol:

You are in a unique position to have multiple turtles. Almost anyone else on here would have a very hard time housing four turtles, but you just be able to do it. Best of luck.

Yeah I got the name from South Park, I thought "Butters" was a cute name. :D

Wow! Congratulations on your new turtle friends. It's awesome that you have access to whatever tanks you need, but I must admit that it would be super cool if all 4 of them were in a 400 gallon tank like untsmurf said! Don't guess you dad gets too many of those in, huh?
