If you need help with your turtle, it's always best to give people as much information as possible. Most of the time, behavioral or medical problems can be traced to improper environments within the vivarium. So when you post your question, please provide us with the following information as completely as you can: 1) What temperature is the enclosure (include both water temperature and basking temperature where aplicable)? 2) Describe the enclosure. Include details about the type of haul out area and basking area you have, substrate, any decorations or live plants, and especially what other occupants (if any) are in the enclosure as well. 3) What type of lighting do you use? Is there a UVA/UVB light source? What wattage bulb do you use for a basking bulb? What are the lighting timers set to? 4) Are you using a water filter, water heater, or any other type of equipment inside the tank? If so, what kind? Also include details about diet. What makes up the majority of the diet? Are you supplementing the diet with calcium powder or cuttle bone? If there is anything else that might help like: Is this a new addition? Was the turtle neglected in the past? How old is he? Any past medical problems? etc, etc, etc Will be useful too. As much detail as possible will help others get a sense of what your turtle's world is like and will help us give suggestions and recommendations much more quickly and more appropriately. Thanks!!!
