Have two RES, one for the past 18 months and the other about a year.
Have been regularly feeding them frozen shrimps and prawns. This diet has made them grow quite big, 'coz a friend of mine has his RES almost same time frame but feeding them normal turtle food in the form of pellets and his RES have not grown as big. They are almost half the size of my RES.
I want to feed Green veggies (Iceberg Lettuce) to my turtles, butthey wont even look at them. I even tried by not feeding them for two days any thing else except the greens, but still to no avail............They would start swimming violently and try to bite my fingers when I approach them but would not even look towards the green.
What should I do to make them eat varied types of food, including greens, 'coz by the rate they are growing, they would out size their Tank very soon...........
