Back in August a lady from church gifted my kids with a red eared slider turtle. A month later, she gives us two more but these ones are younger. The first one she gave is about 2 years old. We've read up on RES on the internet as much as we could but haven't find reliable info on how to care for very young RES. One of the smaller ones looked sick and didn't want to eat. Sadly, it died yesterday and my kids were kinda shocked and upset. Does anyone here have information on baby RES care?
By the way, the turtles are in separate tanks located on our small stone patio. Should we build a small pond instead? Would it be better for the turtles?
