    Moved my toads to their larger tank, it has a larger water area (30 inch x 12 inch x 4/5 inch deep). I was wondering how often people think I should do a partial water change. There are live plants in the water. Cheers Chris

    I recently got my first two turtles, both Yellow-Bellied Sliders and both very young. One's the size of a £2 coin and the other about 50% bigger. The water in their terrarium has become very cloudy in the last two days, to the point where I can't even see them in the corner. I've done a 25%...

    Hi, I have had a Musk turtle since August last year. I am currently updating my filter to an Eheim 2215. I have noticed as he or she is getting bigger, that there seems to be alot of poop accumulating on the sand. I do a 20% water change every 3 or so days just to suck up the poops. I test...
