redeared  wrote  (View  Post):                
Well  i  have  a  3  and  half  inch  red  eared.  I'm  about  to  buy  it  a  tank  ..  May  be  i  will  get  a  4  *  2   *  1.5  (feet)  or  3.5  *  2  *  1.5(feet)  Now  my  concern  is  whether  it  will  drown  in  that  depth  ??                

 read  around  on  how  to  set  up  turtle  setups  
 
 get  a  tank  with  a  large  foot  print,  and  1  foot  tall  is  good  enuff.
 
 fill  the  tank  only  half  way,  
 have  a  dry  dock  for  the  turtle  to  bask,  have  a  light  fixture  right  above  the  dry  dock,  so  that  the  turt  can  bask
 keep  the  dock  in  one  corner  of  the  tank.
 
 now  have  a  nice  filter  for  the  tank,  turts  are  quite  dirty,  and  spoil  water  quality  quite  soon  
 
 have  enuff  hiding  places  for  the  turt,  in  the  other  areas  of  the  tank,  and  do  keep  in  mind,  do  not  put  any  rots  or  such  or  any  lose  decor  such  that  it  can  fall  on  the  turt,  or  the  turt  might  get  stuck  and  drown

 Have  a  very  good  Tank  hood  or  keep  the  water  level  low  such  that  the  height  of  the  tank  rim  from  the  water  surface  is  more  than  the  lenght  of  the  turtle.  Other  wise  the  turtle  will  get  out.

1)some  2  ~3  weeks  ago  i  bought  some  7  pairs  of  fishes  and  i  forgot  to  ask  the  guy  there  names...  How  to  know  the  fishes  names  ??
 like  koi  karp,  gold  fish,  queen  leech.                

 u  will  have  to  so  research  on  the  internet,  or  post  pics  of  the  fish  you  bought  in  a  separate  thread  and  ask  for  id,  and  the  members  here  will  be  happy  to  help.

2)How  can  i  feed  my  turtle  animal  matter.  I'm  a  strict  veggie.  I  tried  my  local  aquarium  shop,  he  said  he  don't  know  what  feeder  fishes  are.
 chicken  wings  stuff  are  strict  NO-NO  in  my  house.  My  parents  will  kick  me  out  of  my  house  for  that.                

 buy  good  quality  turtle  pellets,  or  cichlid  pellets,  or  readup  what  all  their  requirements  are  and  then  buy  pellets  which  constitute  those  ingredients.
 
 
                                                 
redeared  wrote  (View  Post):                
3)How  can  we  tell  the  age  of  a  red  eared  slider(approx)                

 you  can  give  an  approximate  by  their  size,  at  a  particular  age  they  are  of  some  size,  so  read  up  on  them  and  you  might  be  able  to  estimate  their  age  Smile

 well  this  half  tank  filling  is  something  i  didnt  understand  !!!!
 
 i  have  a  wooden  platform  like  thing  that  floats  on   in  the  aquarium  ...  my  turt  usually  climbs  on  to  it  ...........it  seems  i  forgot  to  mention  that.
 
 But  do  tell  me  why  to  fill  it  only  half  !!!
 
 well  as  of  for  my  old  turtle  i  put  it  in  a  tub  and  then  put  my  tube  on  my  roof.  the  walls  of  the  tub  created  some  shade.....  so  when  it  got  tired  it  would  rest  in  that  shade.

 well  this  half  tank  filling  is  something  i  didnt  understand  !!!!                

 hmmm  see  when  you  have  dry  dock  it  has  to  be  right  under  the  bulb  for  it  to  bask,  
 red  ear  sliders  aren't  fully  aquatic,  thus  when  u  have  a  taller  tank  it  will  have  trouble  to  swim  all  the  way  to  the  top  and  then  climb  on  to  the  dry  dock,
 
 the  dry  dock  should  be  easily  accessible  to  the  turt,  that  is  it  shouldn't  be  doing  pull  ups  to  reach  the  top,  there  has  to  be  an  inclination  on  which  it  can  easily  crawl  up  to  the   dock.  
 
 keep  the  dock  fixed  so  that  the  turt  gets  good  source  of  light  when  it  sits  on  the  dock  
 the  other  parts  of  the  tank  must  be  not  highly  lit,  as  they  like  to  hide,  if  they  aren't  basking.

 did  the  tub  have  any  water  in  it  
 and  during  what  times  of  the  day  did  you  put  him  out  in  the  sun  
 even  though  what  the  doc  suggested  was  good,  the  wya  it  was  implemented  was  not  right  i  guess.
 
 if  you  have  a  good  source  of  light  in  the  tank,  they  wouldn't  need  to  be  kept  out  in  the  sun.

 I  used  to  feed  my  turts  FDBW  till  a  month  back.  Now  that  they  have  grown  I  shift  between  Pellets,  Veggies(Carrots/Coriander),  Chiclid  Pellets,  Boiled  Chicken,  GHM  ,Live  Feeds(Guppies).  As  they  say,  variety  is  the  spice  of  life  and  why  should  turts  be  deprived  of  it..
 
 On  topic  though,  I  have  been  on  quite  a  few  RES  forums  and  havent  come  across  or  read  anything  which  discourages  the  use  of  BW.  My  turts  also  seemed  to  enjoy  it  and  I  dont  see  any  harm  if  you  continue  feeding  them  with  BW.
