    I have 3 red eared slider turtles, when they are little they like to bask on the floating dock with the heat lamp on them. If it won't go in the water, it may be sick, make sure it will eat a lot, if it does it is okay. Make sure it has enough swimming room, a 20 gallon tank should be big enough for it for a while.

    it truly is very uncomplicated. issues would desire to get normalized after each and every week or 2. If it takes longer, slip some small earthworms into the water for the turtle to hit upon. do not feed it any plant rely till the turtle matures.

    Make sure your water is warm with a heater, and clean. Drop some food maybe into the water.
