  1. Shelled - Turtles & Tortoise
    Hi All, We've come to the difficult decision that the best future for our little RES would be to rehome him with someone who has more time to give him the dedication and attention he deserves. However; after coming to this decision we're now having an awful problem finding a suitable home for...

    Hi All, Stumped on a tank issue and was wondering if anybody could help. We have a little female RES who has lived quite happily for years in a 500l tank (filled to about half full) with a Fluval 405 filter and Arcadia D3 T5 UV lighting. Recently, we noticed that the water in the tank had...

    Hi My RES just laid eggs (unfertile) yesterday. Just wonder how many more clutches she may lay in the next few days or weeks? I didn't prepare nesting area, she just laid on the floor when I let her out from the tank yesterday. I live in an high rise apartment in Malaysia. Their tank is set...

    Here is a 75 gallon tank I just completed for our red-eared slider. Fake wall on 2 sides, removable "island" that hides the top tank support, and an ~8" tank topper to prevent escapes and allows for the tank to be completely filled.

    A happy story for you all :) because bad husbandry in the reptile world is depressing- So 'Myrtle' is around 20 years old and I got her last January with a 3 inch carapace which was black, pyramided and very tucked in at the sides. She also had a fungal infection and RI and a lot of retained...

    Sometimes my father takes Squirt my RES out of his tank and puts him on the floor of the living room. Anyway, Squirt keeps on going up and sitting in front of our fire (it's a wood-burning enclosed fire with a glass door) My father takes Squirt away from the fire and puts him elsewhere in the...

  14. Shelled - Turtles & Tortoise
    Hey guys :) So I know that turtles shouldn't have too much protein so I only feed two or so times a week But I was wondering about feeding fresh fish to them such as whitebait perhaps? what are peoples opinions?
  15. Shelled - Turtles & Tortoise

  18. Turtles & Tortoise Pictures
    In certain ways, she is my favourite because she is very "sociable". I mean, she doesnt mind my presence around her. For sure, I know she associates me with foods because everytime when I approached the tank (when they were in the tank) or when I approached the balcony (when they were out on...
