 Hi,
 
 As  the  turtles  are  small,  it  would  be  better  that  they  are  NOT  totally  submerged  in  the  aquarium.
 
 Keep  some  rocks  in  a  shallow  aquarium.  Turtles  should  be  able  to  come  up,  sit  on  these  high  spots,  &  go  back  into  water  when  they  want.
 
 Feeding  live  worms,  lettuce,  will  be  OK.

 hi  shishirkamat!
 
             Actually  to  keep  turtles  optimally  would  be  difficult.They  need  some  exposure  to  direct  sunlight.(or  bright  warm  tungsten  light)This  will  get  them  warm,and  get  their  body  physiology  working.They  will  also  need  a  good  source  of  minerals,for  their  shells.Eggs,boiled...i  guess,You  will  need  to  check  up  if  its  ok  to  feed  them  the  egg  shell  too(thats  a  good  source  of  minerals)  Smile

 Hi
 
 Normally,  during  rainy  seasons,  there  is  a  fresh  stock  of  small  Turtles  which  are  available  in  Bombay  Markets.
 
 These  are  imported  from  Singapore,  but  has  been  banned  lately.
 
 A  turtle,  size  of  which  will  be  slightly  bigger  then  a  rupee  coin,    will  be  sold  around  Rs  150/-  The  Colour  is  very  impressive.  It  is  green  with  Yellow  &  red  strains.
 
 Fillypin.

 Hi  Naga,
 These  turtles  are  about  2  inch  in  diameter,  the  shell  is  dark  green  and  has  yellow  ring  on  it.I  paid  Rs  160  for  each  turtle,It  is  true  that  turtles  from  singapore  are  banned  and  most  likely  these  are  of  Indian  origin.I  freel  these  must  have  come  here  either  from  Mumbai  or  Chennai,you  could  contact  members  from  these  areas  for  details  
 with  regards

 The  "singaporean"  turtles  are  red  eared  sliders  and  they  are  not  native  and  thus  legal  to  keep.  if  you  want  to  keep  more  than  1-2  you  need  a  license.

 Red  Eared  sliders  as  compared  to  their  other  counter  parts  are  really  hardy  turtles.  And  you  can  keep  1-2  of  them  but  you  might  need  at  least  a  150  gallon  tank  with  an  attached  spot  or  platform  of  some  form  for  them  to  come  up.  And  with  some  extreme  filtration  and  constant  aeration  and  a  source  of  UV-A  and  UV-B  light  for  their  shells  to  be  hard  enough.  This  is  just  the  basic  and  just  to  be  on  the  right  track  don't  add  any  fishes  as  they  will  sooner  or  later  be  eaten.  Happy  Turtle  keeping.  Thumb Up
