omg DONT put the baby in with adults!!! adults will EAT the baby. your just going to find another way to heat the babies water. try putting a basking light [not too hot] over a small tank with a a basking spot. he'll be shy at first but he'll get use to it and he'll know to bask...reptiles are homed into instinct. i heard that someone did that and one day the baby turtle lost its leg from the adult turtle! and some turtles are more agressive then others or they might decide that they want to try and take a nip out of curiousity. dont take the risk!!!

If $12 is a controversy, you may not take care of to pay for a turtle!! instead, purchase a e book on turtle care, and look at up on each and all the failings you will could save a turtle healthful. That way, in case you come back to a selection to get a turtle interior the destiny, you will comprehend how lots you're able to save up, and what is going into looking after one. (particular lights, warmth, foodstuff, filtration, etc). they're very intense upkeep pets! They unquestionably won't be able to stay in a 2 gallon tank...or a 10 gallon tank.

You can put em in with the adults after its pretty old, not when its really young, it depends on how old it is
